Hi Dan,
I see you are still shoveling manure.

I don't like it but believe x-bows will be part of next years season

Sad but may as well join them. I think I will buy a couple of x-bows for friends to come hunt with me

Pretty easy to have guests at bow camp now

I hear you Bullwinkle.

If I were to take up the chase with an arrow projectile, I'd still prefer to use a bow (recurve and/or longbow) vs. the crossbow, but do believe that it will allow for more opportunity to get new hunters interested in the sport. Maybe they'll grow tired of the crossbow and move to a regular bow or look for additional challenge and try a recurve and/or longbow.

I personally think it's much ado about nothing. I think you'll see the same thing we are seeing with the wolf hunt. Lots of participants the first year or two and then the luster will wear off when they realize they still need to be where the deer are and are now limited to a shorter effective range than they are with a gun.

When baiting becomes illegal, and it will somday, crossbow hunters will drop out rapidly

As will a lot of gun & bow hunters.

Let's call a spade a spade. In lieu of calling crossbow "hunters" the scum of the earth and lazy, let's realize that there are just as many bow and gun "hunters" that do nothing more than set a treestand or blind and put down a pile of corn 20 yards away either.

It's pretty common to see on public lands in the north come fall.

100 percent agree Dan

Bowhunter numbers will decline as well without baiting
