"No bow or crossbow may be used which will not cast a legal hunting arrow, except flu-flu arrows, a horizontal distance of 130 yards."
I'm getting my daughter ready to hunt. Her arrow she's using is pretty heavy for her current draw weight/length and won't do 130 yards currently. I'm hoping to get her draw wt up so that her hunting arrow will do 130, but the way I read the above, it says "a legal hunting arrow," which tells me I could set up a flight arrow with a BH and so long as it's legal to hunt with and can make it 130 yards, that means the bow is good enough for the law, regardless if the arrow she's using for hunting will make it 130 yards.
Or who's going to pardon me when my arrow that sails 180 yards lands in some dude's a$$.
I asked if he would ever stop a kid from hunting due to equipment, "Not in a million years!" he said emphatically.
There are a plethora of California Game Laws that have no semblance of common sense, they should be reviewed by HUNTERS and edited.
Too much emphasis on WILDLIFE in Fish and Wildlife these days. I miss the old Department of Fish and Game.
