CrossBow Hunting

Friends-Curious if you can use a Crossbow in WV for deer hunting? The rules have me confused as I think a Class Y LICENSE/permit is only need for 4 counties....

I hunt with one in Preston county. Non resident hunting license, and the bow stamp, and a Doe tag run about $190 for me...

Crossbows are legal for all deer seasons except the mountianeer heritage season in january where only flintlock/percussian rifles and recurve or longbows are legal

I hunt crossbow in Hampshire County. I agree with Goldslammer, non-resi with bow tag (either sex) and a rifle doe tag runs about $190. Using the website to buy your license is pretty straight forward...reading the regs and rules is pretty confusing. On the site just select what you want to do (hunt)...don't worry about stamp YYZ, or whatever. You'll need the basic hunting along with the conservation stamp. Add bow hunting, doe for rifle, etc.

Yep, perfectly legal. I had shoulder surgery this past February and it is still very painful to draw my compound bow, so I am looking at getting either a Ravin or TenPoint crossbow if my shoulder doesn't improve by next season. This makes me very sad as bow hunting has always been what I enjoy the most and feel I am too young to have to give it up.
