He did not answer my question in detail like it is not like a gun or like is it for hunting How long ago was the felon?
Thank you for your follow up.I have provided you with a correct answer and another senior experienced legal experts has agreed with the fact that my answer is correct.A bow is not considered to be a firearms, since it does not use any type of bullets or gun powder to shoot a projectile, so it would not matter when the felony conviction took place and as long as the convicted felon has completed his/her sentence, the felon would be permitted to own a bow and to use it for any lawful purpose, such as hunting or target shooting.
