    They are showing accuracy of modern crossbows. My 14 year old twin boys both hit the 11 ring on a 3d target last year at 114 yards with compounds. That don't mean it OK to take a shot at an animal at that distance. We need to all stick together as hunters and not try to push what you don't like out of the group. That is as bad as the antis. I own a crossbow and will tell you there is no advantage as how far they can shoot. They have more drop than a compound bow. I hunt with a compound but used the crossbow to get my boy's in the field when they were 8 years old. They are now compound hunters. There is nothing wrong with crossbows. Some people just don't want see more people in the woods.

    Kebees this is second time some one has refered me to anti. Feel thats darn dissrespecfull to call someone that because I know what a anti hunter is.

    Because I have my views how crossbows should be intruduced into hunting is not being a anti hunter. Crossbows have never been not allowed in my state ever. You can use one if you were handicapped or use them during gun season. If you think crossbow manufactuers are not drivng the issue of crossbows because of profits gained you diffiantly not full informed. There allowed in my state now because of increased sales of deer tags. Public hunting land can only allow so many hunters and money is now the driving force in my state. I said give them there own season but dont allow them in archery. Its just my opionion and not that of a anti hunter.
    DB

    By the way I asked everyone I hunted with in Ohio before are law passed here including the bow shop owner how they felt about crossbows and 100% said they wished they werent allowed. Ignorance you might say bt I feel everyone is entitled to there opionions even on hunting. Kids can be taught to shoot a bow.

    That is what my grandfather told me about the compound bow almost 50 years ago. I am still waiting on a NEW argument against the crossbow.

    Living in Ontario, where crossbows have been legal forever, I really think it makes no difference having them in our season. The guys that get skunked will do it with a crossbow or a compound. I do feel a major benefit is that it leaves fewer deer as coyote food. Many who will hunt regardless of being able to be accurate or not will hold a 6" group easier with a crossbow and keep the bolt in the lung area vs. 1' groups with a compound.

    As for AT, I just stay away anymore. I check into the Canadian section once in a while and thats it.

    a friend of mine who is 6'9" he has struggle find a long draw bow and he want shot a crossbow coz he isnt DA or handicap ? but in my mind he doesnt need crossbow..

    he doesnt want buy a expensive bow but no choice for him.. well thanks god i'm not that long draw.. 30 ' prefect fit me w/o stright smack my arm..

    Look for an older Conquest bow for him. Seems to be good choice for lang draw guys.

    And NOT my point. What I am saying is that every ANTI crossbow argument I hear today, is the exact same thing I heard 40 years ago from people arguing AGAINST the compound bow.
    I didn't understand it then, I don't understand it now. It opens the door for more people to become involved in hunting. Which would you rather see in the woods, a crossbow hunter who is at least moderately proficient with that weapon? Or someone who picks up a compound 3 days before the season starts? I see it here all the time, rifle hunters who take 2 shots the day before the season starts, they own an old compound for archery season that gets dusted off a day or two before the season starts. If someone can be accurate with the crossbow, more power to him.

    Question Does the Crossbow kill any of North American animals effectively?
    Answer is YES.

    I do not see why it is so bad. Yes at first I thought it was not right but that is just because I am a die hard bowhunter, never hunt with a rifle. But why should a man not be able to use this weapon. Heck it is actually pretty cool, I was working on a show about 7 years ago that Horton was considering sponsoring we took a guy down to texas and I set up his crossbow for him and with something to set the crossbow on like shooting a rifle I was crazy accurate at 60 yards. I mean I could keep ever shot within a 5 spot 10 for sure and have an high x count. Will there be some guys taking long shots and wounding deer well yes but it will be no different than now with a bow and arrow in their hands. Heck as a kid growing up loving to shoot the bow hunting would get tough and I would see a deer at long range and say what the heck give it a shot. Nowadays I will not take those chances hope that I have smartened up a little bit. There is no way to control that mindset so we just have to deal with that, because if we use these reasons to get rid of crossbows the same argument could be used to get rid of my love the Compound bow.

    Go Crossbows, Why not. I personally can not wait to take my 9 year old daughter out next year and let her try and take a deer with one. I think a crossbow could be the best tool for teaching young kids to shoot without being scared. They shoot with no extremely loud bang and no recoil to hurt them. My Girls will love it.

    I have no problem with someone handicap or elderly useing a crossbow in during bow season. The problem I have is everyone else during bow season.
    They can have a season of there own like, after gun season or push gun season out a week.
