Nova Scotia Crossbow Safety Course


Chapter 3: Crossbow Safety

When the crossbow is in the cocked position, there is a great amount of potential energy stored in the limbs, and the crossbow must be treated with respect. It is every crossbow hunter's responsibility to be familiar with the type and model of crossbow they are using; as well as all the safety measures they need to follow in order to use the crossbow properly and safely. Information on your crossbow's make and model can be obtained through their authorized dealer, manufacturer's manual and the manufacturer's website.
