Where are boneheads legal for hunting?
« on: November 11, 2019, 06:44:04 pm »
Hi All,

Where are boneheads legal for hunting?.  To be clear, "bonehead" is not in reference to myself but in reference to arrow heads made from bone.

Cheers!

I would guess anywhere it doesn't say steel specifically but you better check the hunting regs for each state.

From the Indiana Regulations: Arrows must be tipped with broadheads that are metal, metal-edged, or napped flint, chert or obsidian. Poisoned or exploding arrows are illegal

Notice that nothing is said about how wide the arrowhead is.  In neighboring states there is a requirement that the arrowhead be a minimum width.

Minimum legal hunting bow is 35#

Good in Florida.
Lakeland, Florida
 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Pretty sure they're OK in Maine. Here's the relevant section: "...and broad-head arrow. Arrowheads (including expandable mechanical broadheads) must be at least ⅞ inch in width. It is unlawful to use a set bow, or to use arrows with poisonous or explosive tips."
No mention of metal.
