Bow and arrow can be used for hunting in Russia from now on. Such a law was adopted by parliament's lower house's MPs.
According to the document, bows will be considered as a small-throwing weapon, according to Moskva news agency.
Unlike a crossbow, the use of a bow requires the physical skills of a hunter. Up till now the bow and arrows could only be used for sports in Russia.
Now it will be possible to purchase a hunting bow for those Russians who have a hunting ticket and permission to store and carry the appropriate weapon. It will be necessary to register the bow with the National Guard of Russia within two weeks since purchase.
