Just got this from Mississippi - " Just a short note to advise you that our full inclusion crossbow bill cleared the final hurdle this morning. The bill passed the full Senate with no "nay" votes. SB 2048 is now on its way to the Governor's desk for his signature. Once signed, it will become effective July 01, 2013, and everyone regardless of age will be able to hunt deer, turkey, and small game with a crossbow."
