Modern firearm season in a restricted firearm area is allowed. 
Economy failure = Too many people spending money they don't have on things they don't need to impress people they don't like.

Thanks ghost! I see that 501 is not a firearm restricted area, but the hunting method for spring bears is any legal weapon. To me that says crossbows are okay.  true?

Crossbows are not legal for hunting big game- yet. That will change this year, but I don't think the revised law will take effect until sometime after the spring bear season is over.

Yes they are

In firearm restriction areas during modern firearm season, yes they are. But that's not what we're talking about here.

So i assume, to use a crossbow this spring you still need a doctors note or whatever

Looking at the map at all the green open access. Is all this going to be drivable when the season starts??

So I did not draw Lincoln but will be in the area a lot looking for sheds and scouting. I know the area like the back of my hand. If any of you fellas need a little help I would be more than happy to share what I see.  Or if you see me and the lab or English setter stop and say hello.
