Crossbows may be used to hunt wildlife in firearm
restriction areas. See page 67.

11. Prohibited firearms/hunting methods
It is illegal to:
Hunt game birds with a shotgun capable
of holding more than three shells.
Hunt game birds with a rifle or pistol,
except forest grouse.
Hunt game birds or game animals with
anything other than a firearm, a bow and
arrow, or by falconry. Bullfrogs may only
be taken by angling, hand dip netting,
gigging, and bow and arrow.
Hunt game animals or game birds with a
shotgun larger than 10 gauge.
Hunt wildlife with a crossbow, except
in firearm restriction areas. However,
disabled hunter permittees in possession
of a crossbow special use permit may
hunt with a crossbow in any season that
allows archery equipment
