My wife has been battling a pretty bad elbow problem for sometime now. She can no longer draw legal bow weight to hunt. She isn't interested in rifle hunting. She wants to try a crossbow. We have zero experience with them. Is that realistic?

I know a guy in similar condition, he got a note from the doctor and got a disabled permit so he can do archery season with crossbow.

I am under the impression you have to undergo surgery first before you can get a disabled permit.  My shoulders have kept me out of archery for last couple years and Id sure like to be able to go xbow but was told cant happen unless I have surgery and then still cant shoot after rehab.  Id like to be misinformed/wrong, xbow would save archery season for a bunch of old archers.

I'm in the same situation.  Had a torn rotator cuff but the O-doc did not recommend surgery because of the nature of the tear.  I have not even attempted pulling back a bow since.  I hunt 2 midwestern states, MO and WI and crossbows are now legal for all.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice
