The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) Commission just announced that this fall .30 caliber and larger airguns as well as air bows such as the Benjamin Pioneer Airbow™ will be legal for deer and turkey hunting. This is a major step forward in the evolution of air gun hunting.
The following states now allow the use of the airguns and/or the Crosman Airbow during hunting season: Arizona, Virginia, Missouri, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, and Washington State allow big game hunting with the Airbow. Feral hogs can be taken in Georgia, Florida and Texas and coyotes and other predators may be hunted with the Airbow in over 30 states. You can also hunt Aligator in Georgia and South Carolina how cool is that.
We caught up with Jay Duncan, Director of Marketing for Crosman , “We are elated to learn that The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Commission has approved big bore airguns and the revolutionary Benjamin Pioneer Airbow for big game like deer and turkey. With this change in regulation, hunters are offered expanded to ethically harvest game.”
The Pioneer Airbow featuring full length arrows and full weight broadheads, all driven by air. Based on Benjamin’s proven American-made PCP platform, the Pioneer can be cocked with just two fingers and fires 8 shots at a blazing 450 FPS. You can view this game-changer by viewing this video of Jim Shockey taking down a water buffalo:
The Benjamin Bulldog is a .357 caliber 3000 psi PCP airgun that delivers 10 shots at 200 foot pounds of energy. The bullpup design features a rifled and shrouded barrel for a quiet shot, and enough picatinny rail to mount a scope and just about any accessory. Check out the Bulldog in the Management Advantage’s video below:
Thanks to Texas a lot more people are going to be able to experience hunting and thanks to CROSMAN for continuing to advocate for PCP, Airgun and Airbow hunting.
