HB 1134 essentially removes the old language for disabled permits wit almost identical language passed by the BOC last April.

That language is (new language underlined):


"Bow." A weapon which propels an arrow, is hand-held, handdrawn,
held in the drawn position by hand or by a hand-held
mechanical device and released by hand. The term [shall not be construed or interpreted to mean or include what is commonly known as a cross-bow] <span style="text-decoration: underline">includes a device held in place by a brace secured around the body of the hunter. The term also includes a crossbow which, when used for hunting deer, bear or turkey, has a draw weight of no less than 125 pounds and uses arrows tipped with broadheads of a cutting edge design.

Co-sponsor memo:

MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 21, 2013 10:01 AM

From: Representative Gary Haluska

To: All House members

Subject: Definition of a crossbow (Title 34 Game)


On January 24, 2012 the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners gave preliminary approval to a regulation change that made permanent the lawful use of crossbows in archery deer, bear and turkey seasons. The vote of the Board was unanimous and the final adoption occurred in April 2012.

With that in mind, I will soon introduce legislation that removes language from Title 34 (Game) that has been made unnecessary by the Board's action. With my bill, crossbow will become allowable implements with which to hunt big game in Pennsylvania permanently.
