    220-2-.03 Legal Specifications For Bow And Arrow.
    (1) A legal bow for hunting is defined as either a long bow, a recurve bow, a compound bow or a crossbow.
    (2) It shall be unlawful, except as otherwise provided by law or regulation, for any person to hunt deer and turkey with bow and arrows that are not in conformance with the following specifications:
    (a) Bows must have a minimum peak tension (within the user's normal draw length) of 30 pounds. Crossbows must have a minimum peak tension of 85 pounds at normal draw length.
    (b) Arrows shall be equipped with a broadhead which has a minimum cutting diameter of 7/8 inch and 2 sharpened edges.
    (3) Crossbows must be equipped with a working safety.

    Note that you can use a hand thrown spear to take deer in Alabama. It must have a sharpened blade in conformance with the standards for broadheads in paragraph 2(b) of 220-2-.03. This make the Cold Steel Bushman illegal because it only has one sharpened edge.
    We don't have all them Rules: just some #1 working safety #2 x-Bow must have 300/FPS #3 7/8 " wt 2 cutting edges.

      I remember back during my younger days. The opening day archery season was like a kid waiting for Christmas.
      The Division of F&G took out the trill for bow hunting bucks, now you need to earn a buck tag by shooting a breeder doe first. I am not interested in shooting does in September. A doe is a backup meat source during the later hunting seasons if I fail to bag a buck.

          About a month and a week till Eastern NC bow opener. Doves come in a few days before and I'm gonna try to make the opener for that, as well as quail, ducks and bear this year. I got a new bow string a couple months ago and that's about all the archery gear I've bought this year. Gonna be trying my climber on public lands.

            Our season opens Oct. 1st, but I don't hunt much in the first half of the month. No reason to - the hunting only gets better after about the 15th, so why risk burning out your spots?

                  Get the 'Down Safe', not that expensive and it will let you down to the ground in case you slip or fall.

                    Tred Barta TV show was hilarious. One episode he practiced running through the woods with a bowie knife in his mouth practicing for wild hogs. I don't know if he ever did that or if he is still alive.

                        Not gearing up for an early season, but definitely starting to gear up for regular archery. I'm thinking I need a X-box package. Either that or I'm going to end up bird hunting for a week!

                          Ordered a shooting stick for the ol' .454 casull. It's not that it's THAT heavy (ha), but why not make life easier for a steady shot. Also ordered a bow sight illuminator for shady blinds. Camo is ready to go, and all applicable rifles sighted in.
