Crossbows are permitted as a legal hunting method for all Oklahoma hunters this fall

 Crossbows are now legal for use by all Oklahoma hunters this year during archery seasons. There are no restrictions on who can use a crossbow.


Crossbow / Mechanical Bow Draw Device Usage

The use of crossbows and conventional longbows with a device that permits the bow to be held mechanically at full or partial draw are legal hunting methods during any open season when conventional longbows (archery equipment) are a legal means of take. See individual speciesí regulations for any draw weight, bolt length and broadhead size requirements.
