You cannot kill any wild animal, in the UK, with a crossbow.

Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981

The reason you can't find the right forum is because there isn't a forum set up for it.

i allways thought it was the out of season phesants that he took. but seriously there was a big to do one night and he went and pulled the cros-bow out like a fool and started waving it around, obviously the boys in blue were called he did a runner and ended up been caught by police dogs, and wasnt his 1st conviction so long story short hes got away for a while (well thats what his mum likes to think)
