I'm in the same boat here...put more hunters in my area, and I'll just gun hunt instead, less pressure is the main reason I went bow hunting in the first place. I personaly have to admit, I have been a part of bow hunting deer drives, it works if done the correct way...ORIGINAL: msbadger
Wack ...you took a small snipit of my post and then went on your long impassioned speal...which is good that you feel strongly about the subject...now I never said that bowhunters do drives...when mentioning "pushing" to me it was to say more hunter movement = more deer movement which is'nt a bad thing...I don't hunt public land but I don't want more ppl out in bow season trying to hunt my land either and HERE...in my little corner of the globe happens alot...What I did say is guys just won't come right out and say "Hey I hate the thought of CB because...I don't want more hunters out there competing with me"...right or wrong I'm just stating what I think the true nuts and bolts of the argument is...hey I rifle hunt at camp but I'm fighting hard to stop rifle season here at home it is a safety issue ..FOR ME ..IN MY AREA..if ppl were to become more impationed about cleaning up the bad elements in the hunting community as thay are about trying to legalize crossbows...then you'd have an easier time convincing anti's we aren't a bunch of weapon toting heathens
I think our state does allow the use of the spear, I dont know the rules and regulations for spear hunting deer , as I haven't contacted a cpo about the subject yet.ORIGINAL: JChurch
I don't visit the site for awhile and this is what I come back to? Who cares what kind of weapon you use as long as you get out there and hunt,I would use a spear if they had a season for it and it meant I could spend more time in the woods hunting, what's so wrong with crossbows if it gets more people hunting which in turn gives us more support against the anti's who want to take everything away from all of us. If we don't agree with a form of hunting that's fine but don't take it away from them because then your doing the anti's job for them and all they have to do is sit back and watch.
My state still only issues a certain number of licenses so it isn't like you'll have a crossbow hunter in every tree. I hunt private property anyway.
