$1,200 per hunter is the cost
The crossbow Kentucky deer season is shorter than most. The last crossbow I owned was about 150 pounds shooting very light "bolts" at 400+ feet per second. They are deadly accurate and you have a significant advantage over regular archers because there is no "draw and hold" you have to contend with. You don't have the range of muzzle loaders, but most guys will 60 yards at a trophy.
If you shoot a compound bow or a crossbow, you are welcome here. You guys know your stuff, can score deer on the hoof better than most and you come with your gear sighted in.
5 days/nights of cross bow hunting is usually allowed for 3 weeks beginning October 1st.
