Pennsylvania Broadhead Hunting Regulations
Are mechanical broadheads legal in Pennsylvania? Yes
Long, recurve, compound bows (minimum draw weight of 35 pounds) or crossbows with broadheads of cutting edge design. Shall have an outside diameter or width of at least 7/8 of an inch with at least two cutting edges located on the same plane throughout the length of the cutting surface. Broadheads shall not exceed three inches in length measured from the tip of the broadhead to the point that fits against the arrow shaft.
Crimson Talons were the only broadheads I found to be questionable as the cutting edge was not straight along it's plane. However, according to the mfg. the broadheads have been approved by the PGC as the blades straighten upon impact. ??????
I'm just repeating what I read!!!!
Short of hiring two Pittsburgh Lawyers; I didn't see anything about barbed broadheads.
Let us know if you get busted.
