Any locality may prohibit the shooting of an arrow from a bow in a manner that can be reasonably expected to result in the impact of the arrow upon the property of another without permission from the owner or tenant of such property. For the purposes of this section, “bow” includes all compound bows, crossbows, longbows and recurve bows having a peak draw weight of ten pounds or more. The term “bow” does not include bows which have a peak draw of less than ten pounds or which are designed or intended to be used principally as toys. The term “arrow” means a shaft-like projectile intended to be shot from a bow.
