There is no minimum draw requirement for longbows, compound bows or recurve bows

A crossbow is lawful for game animals and game birds, provided:

the crossbow has a minimum pull of 125 pounds;
the crossbow has a mechanical safety; and
the crossbow stock is not less than 25 inches in length.
Telescopic sights are lawful.

Technically yes, as long as broad head is 7/8 or larger in cutting diameter

Went back and read the regulations and there isn't any as to the bow, only the width of the broadhead as mentioned above.
There used to be a restriction where the bow had to be able to cast an arrow a certain distance, but looks like that has been removed.

Saw a guy on You Tube build one for bow fishing. Think it broke on the second shot.
