Ontario Bowhunting Weight, Size and Arrowhead Regulations

The following bowhunting regulations only apply in Ontario. Check your local regulations for the state or province you are in.

Bows must have a draw weight of at least 22 kilograms (48.5 lb.) at draw length of 700 mm (27.6 in.) or less. Arrows must be at least 600 mm (23.6 in.) long and have at a minimum a 22 mm (0.87 in.) wide head with at least two sharp cutting edges.

Bows must have a draw weight of at least 18 kilograms (39.7 lb.) at a draw length of 700 mm ( 27.6 in.) or less. Arrows must be at least 600 mm (23.6 in.) long and have at a minimum a 22 mm (0.87 in.) wide head with at least two sharp cutting edges.

Crossbows must have a draw length of at least 300 mm (11.8 in.) and a draw weight of at least 54 kilograms (119 lb.). At a minimum bolts must have a 22 mm (0.87 in.) wide head with at least two sharp cutting edges.

Crossbows must have a draw length of at least 300 mm (11.8 in.) and a draw weight of at least 45 kilograms (99.2 lb.). At a minimum bolts must have a 22 mm (0.87 in.) wide head with at least two sharp cutting edges.

Note - Arrowheads may be straight or serrated. There used to be a regulation against serrated arrowheads in Ontario, but that has since been removed. Serrated arrowheads do more damage upon entering and kill an animal faster, making the kill more merciful.

Note also that there is no regulation prohibiting what materials arrowheads can be made out of. This means traditional bone, horn, flint and stone arrowheads could also be used.
