Rules on crossbow hunting eased

Younger and older hunters will soon have more freedom to use crossbows beginning this fall.
The Kansas Wildlife, Park and Tourism Commission voted late last month to allow hunters 55 and older and those 15 years older with a youth big game permit to use the equipment during big game archery season, according to the Associated Press.
Crossbows have previously been allowed for Kansans physically unable to hunt with traditional archery equipment, but this moves the state closer to the freedoms of several other states which allow all sportsmen the privilege.
Those at Smoky Valley Shooting Sports in Lindsborg have increased their stock of crossbows in preparation for the change.
“We’re starting to see lots of inquiries,” Brandon Boldra, manager, said.
Hunters, however, are split on their opinion of the change.
