who knows.. but you also cant shoot a "gun" in howard county. which is defined as a device that expells a projectile thru a barrel by means of: air, compressed air, gas, explosion, spring.. (several more).

Being a bit of a troll a couple years ago, i wrote to the sherif. He agreed that w/ how the law/rules are written.. a spitball shot out of a McDonalds straw.. was considered a GUN in howard county.

I had a similar experience with someone at the Howard County Police Dept. who called a .177 pellet a missile and said it was no different than any other round

No, the stupid ordinance says you canít do that within 300yds or an occupied dwelling, unless you are in a tree stand at least 10 feet off the ground or using a shotgun loaded with shot, then it is 150yds.

Or you are doing it in a basement.

But yes, it technically covers spitball guns, nerf guns and pellet guns.

Surprisingly there doesnít appear to be any ordinance against firing arrows from a bow or crossbow (no barrel) other than the hunting restrictions. But if not hunting...

the spot i was in was my father in laws back yard.. but when i say back yard it was near the rock quarry. i had permission from the rock quarry to hunt there and it was several hundred yards from another building. no biggy. i still pulled 13 out w/ a bow in one year then someone stole my stand...
