Where it is currently legal? Yes.
Where it is not currently legal (aka Iowa and Missouri where I hunt)? No.
Special crossbow seasons? Yes, but not as a replacement for vertigo bows.
Come on JPH, you can do better than that!
Of course if it's legal then people should have the right to use them, and vice versa. Let's hear your insights!
Anyways, I've always been against using crossbows unless it's for a special hunt (disabled person, etc). I know we've gone around and around on this in another thread, and I'm sure this will bring some great discussion, but I feel that a crossbow is quite the step above a compound. I know I'll get the response, 'Well, if you feel that way then compounds should be illegal and just traditional bows should be used...'
On another note, I feel that we should all be banning together to get out there and hunt as often and with as many weapons as possible, as long as it's ethical....But, I'm still not on the crossbow side yet and prob. never will be. Just my opinion.
