MT Crossbows

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the regulations for Crossbows in MT? We are thinking about a trip to MT for Elk and was wondering about the use of crossbows during archery season for someone with a disability.

Thanks!

Crossbows are not considered legal for use during the archery season and I am almost positive that Montana does not make exceptions for hunters with disabilities to use crossbows. A call to FWP would be wise to confirm this, but I am almost certain this is the case.

PFunk, Thanks.  I have been all over the FWP page and find the permit system and lottery quite confusing for a non resident.  Have you bow hunted Elk out there before?

Sorry it took me awhile to check back here... yes I have bow hunted Montana for elk for several years now. I went to college there for 4 years, and hunted elk for 3 of those years. Spent most time around Missoula where I lived, but have also hunted near Great Falls.

Good for Montana.  Wide open as they may be they have been pretty adamant that crossbows have no place in sport hunting.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
