Default Crossbows and records

Forgive my ignorance, if a large buck is killed with a crossbow does it qualify for Pope and Young?

The ACF [Am Crossbow Fed] keeps records, and also puts out the 'Horizontal Bowhunter' magazine 4 times a year, check it out..............

METHOD OF HARVEST
Boone and Crockett Club, emphasizes the trophy instead of the hunter or owner and accepts hunter-taken trophies harvested with any equipment legal in the state or province where the animal is taken. (Pope and Young Club only accepts trophies taken with a bow.)
The Club also accepts trophies that are picked up (e.g. winter kills, road kills, etc.) and trophies of unknown origin (e.g. garage sales, taxidermists, attics, etc.). Trophies accepted with unknown locations of harvest are eligible only if they are for a category without a boundary.

Records kept for WHITETAIL, MULE DEER, ELK, SHEEP, MOOSE, CARIBOU, BEARS AND CATS, HORNED GAME and WALRUS
