If a WMA states archery and does not excluded crossbows, can you use a crossbow for archery?

I have nerve damage in my hands, which is why I have a crossbow. Do you know what documentation they require for an exemption, or how to find out?

From the outdoor annual
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Crossbows are lawful for any person during the Archery-Only Open Season in all counties, except in
Collin, Dallas, Grayson, and Rockwall counties, where no person may use a crossbow to hunt deer during the
Archery-Only Open Season (Sept. 30 - Nov. 3, 2017) unless the person has an upper-limb disability and has
in immediate possession a physicianCs statement that certiies the extent of the disability. An upper-limb
disability is a permanent loss of the use of ingers, hand, or arm in a manner that renders the person
incapable of using a longbow, compound bow, or recurved bow.
