4VAC15-50-70. Game: Bear. Bow and arrow hunting.
The proposal is to remove a reference in the archery bear season regulation to crossbow hunting by certain individuals who are now authorized to crossbow hunt under a different section.
Text of Regulation
- 4VAC15-50-70 (PDF)
Prior to the creation of the current crossbow season, the stricken language allowed those with permanent physical disabilities to use a crossbow during archery season. Currently, all hunters may use a crossbow during the archery season with a special crossbow license purchased in place of an archery license (see 4VAC15-40-21). This provision is no longer necessary and references a subsection of 4VAC15-40-20 that no longer exists (subsection B). A similar reference contained in the archery deer hunting section (4VAC15-90-70) has already been removed. This amendment is simply housekeeping.
