Do any states allow the draw lock system?

Seems like back in the day Arkansas was legal but I could be mistaken. Those things just look way to dangerous to me.

They are legal in Ohio. I would think that they are legal in states where crossbows are legal.

Arkansas regs used to specifically state drawlock was not allowed but crossbows were legal...wtf??? I guess if you saw a warden just hold your bow sideways gangster style!!! Don't know about the rule now but I will have to check it out.

Need a Whisker Biscuit if your going to hold it gangster style. That could be a niche market!

Doesn`t part of the arrow sit in a tube so once it`s drawn there is no way the arrow can go any way but forward. That is what I recall from the ones I saw

I feel a little trollish today, as it's my first day back after a nice family vacation...

Um, these should totally be legal anywhere crossbows are. It's likely a more dangerous system, but the same concept, just added to a vert bow. So... If crossbows are legal this should be too.

Wait, let me get some popcorn now :) ha ha ha!

They are legal in many states if you are disabled and have doctor's documentation. I bought one years ago and set up my 1999 Mathews with it just in case I ever become injured. It was easy to set up and accurate. I don't think that I could ever bring myself to hunt with a crossbow but this might work for me in case of disability. Something to keep in mind for us old guys. Good luck to you all.

I installed one for a friend when they first came out. Scariest device I have ever seen. Looked like it could explode at any time.

The problem seems to be the bow arm has no tension on it and seems to wave the bow all over hell.
