Legalizing Crossbows in Oregon Opening Doors for the Injured and Disabled

Currently in the state of Oregon, it is illegal for anyone to hunt with a crossbow. This law should be repealed because crossbows enable injured and disabled hunters to bow hunt.

Unlike a compound bow, a crossbow can easily be shot from the seated position in a wheelchair.

Crossbows can also be mounted on tripods and swivel mounts, which enables one-armed hunters to steadily aim them.

As hunters age, it becomes challenging to maintain the upper body strength required to draw a compound bow. This fact makes the crossbow increasingly popular with aging hunters.

By legalizing crossbows in Oregon, bow hunters can pass their passion on to those whom they love, regardless of the situation.
