Asking for a coworker.

If the archery only season is over, do you still have to have the archery endorsement to use a crossbow?

He asked me and I honestly don't know.

I believe crossbows have always been legal during gun season. The rub always was that bowhunters didn't want them to be allowed during bow season but lost that battle a year or two ago.

You only need the Archery stamp to hunt with archery equipment during general season in Collin, Dallas, Grayson and Rockwall county.

I know crossbows are legal during both bow and rifle.


My question is, do you have to have the archery endorsement on your license to use it during regular season? He didn't get his archery endorsement when he got the license. I told him y'all would have the answer!

No. UNLESS he is hunting in a archery only county like the ones ChrisB listed above.
