Delay in legalizing crossbow hunting for disabled people



SALEM, Ore. — Oregon fish and wildlife commissioners had to delay action on whether to allow disabled people to hunt deer with crossbows because of the partial shutdown of the federal government.

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission wanted to hear from the Americans With Disabilities Act coordinator from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Tuesday, but that person isn’t working because of the shutdown.

The meeting was postponed until early December.
