Next year bowhunters wont have to vacate the woods on the Friday prior to the gun opener. Thats another great improvement and adds another day of rut bowhunting before the gun hunters blast away and wound a bunch of deer. Its sad seeing all the shot off legs and hanging shot off jaws and finding all the dead deer gun hunters wounded and left for dead when Im bowhunting the late season. Gun hunters do a great deal of good feeding the wolf and coyote population with all the deer they leave dead in the woods unrecovered.
We have plenty of wolf food donated by bow hunters. One of the does, our bow hunters shot, was gut shot by another bow hunter, that
didn't bother to track it. We found two other antlerless deer dead from arrow wounds, and several kill sights, that the wolves made
it hard to do an autopsy on. There was a broken arrow, with a broadhead, about 20 yards from one of the wolf kill sites.
From my view, this snobbery of bow hunting elites is a figment of their imagination.
But I guess you maybe on to something, with the CC resolutions. I think both have been made before, and neither have had enough
support to get to the WDNR. So I guess next year, I will just get a crossbow. Are crossbows good out to 50 yards?
