Thanks for stopping by then, I guess.
Be a dear and try to stay on topic

I’ll save you the trip back so many pages when this thread was created in July of 2011 when Bob Stout posted:
“The gun season IS going to be sharing their 9 days with recurve bows, long bows, compound bows and crossbows very soon unless you do something (other than vote) right now! Call your legislators and get this whole mess turned around. Tell them NO archery equipment during any gun season, period. “
Fast forward to the results of the 2011 gun deer season as described in the latest issue of Wisconsin Outdoor News where they print”
“This was the first year that archers could hunt during the nine-day gun deer season outside the CWD zone (Retch Sweeny note, yes bowhunting during the 9 day gun season has been going on in the CWD zone for some time but most never even noticed it)
Based on reports by conservation wardens, it does not appear that many people hunted deer with a bow and arrow during the 9 day gun deer season.”
Well no kidding!! It was not expected to be this great emergency Bob Stout hoped to gin up which makes me wonder why all the hype in the first place. I suppose a few guys in the Southern part of the state where more firearms restriction are in place, opted for their bow to gain access to lands not open to gun deer hunting but beyond that, this all seems to have been a great big YAWN.
Now that its been returned to its original intent, lets see how long this thread actually stay on topic. I give it less than 4 posts and it will be about me or WBH or evil back room corruption or some other tangent.
Ready, set…………………………………………… Go!

After the ruling goes into effect, crossbows can be used by all, but restricted to deer gun only (where it clearly does not belong) .
