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.
