    Anyone age 62 and older can use a crossbow. Everyone else has to have a medical condition.

    I think, I not possitive and will look at the laws, but I think you have to have a permanent disablity to get a xbow permit if you are not over the age of 62.

    With what you have explained you have a tempary injury, you can be healed by the next hunting season. So you might just have to sit the rest of this season out.

    I also know that there are special forms from the state that your doctor has to fill out and sign before you get a xbow permit. So I really don't think you will get a xbow permit before the end of the season.

    I will see what I can find out.
