Albany, NY (WIBX) - Hunters using a crossbow for big game hunting will soon lose that privilege, as the Department of Environmental Conservation says current provisions will expire at the end of December.

According to the agency, the rules eliminating the permit requirement for disabled hunters and other hunters will expire.

The DEC says the average hunter may no longer use the weapon to shoot big game animals in Suffolk and Tompkins Counties. Disabled hunters will, once again, have to apply for a “modified archer permit.”

The expiring legislation went into effect in February of last year.

More information can be found on the DEC website here and here.
