Look at the Kentucky Afield website. Tim Farmer shoots that way. He screw up his right hand and arm in motorcycle wreck years ago.

Does your state really not allow disabled persons to use Xbow during archery season?

For example, KS only allows 'general public' to use Xbow during rifle seasons, but disabled archers are able to use them (assuming their disability affects their ability to draw a bow) throughout the archery season as well. When I broke my shoulder blade and damaged my AC joint in 2004, I applied for a temporary disability placard that allowed me to get through that season with an Xbow.

If your state DOES NOT allow such concession for disabled hunters, then frankly, I'd get pretty motivated to change that.

In watching of it:

1) Bow weight needs to be quite low.
2) Tab needs to NOT have a big melted edge in your mouth
3) Draw should be set up such that your tab pulls straight out, CANNOT have your bow at an angle to your jaw (you'll shred your cheek in a heartbeat)
4) Might have to adjust your peep height to match new "anchor point"

I personally wouldn't do it. If you find yourself with a mouth, tooth, or jaw injury from overweighting or creeping your cam, you'll be in a world of hurt. It's a big difference if you're permanently disabled, then you have to do what you must, but for someone that'll potentially miss ONE season due to an injury, it wouldn't be worth the risk of injury.

I just looked at the regs for NY and see nothing that will allow a hunter to use a cross bow if you have a temporary disability... THAT SUCKS.. almost every other other state does...

Surely they do, I'd want to see something that tells me I can't rather than just not find something telling me I can.
