For the record I could care less about crossbows, I shotgun and muzzleload. I just see a lot of angst with mostly bow hunters against gun hunters or crossbow or whatever. My point is that hunters and outdoorsmen and women shouldn't fight against each other because there are other battles more important battles that will come along. The deer population here is down, but for crying out loud how many deer do you need to see? Cripes our 2nd season shotgun group could have been done by 11 oclock on Sat morning if we were the brown its down type. Granted we are just 7 dumb buddys that like to hike the woods and be outside. Things cycle, the deer population is the same, I already can count probably 15 guys that have quit hunting in the last 5-7 years, and I don't know that many guys that have started. The easy hunting of seeing 100 deer a day are over and that keeps the fair weather guys at home. I honestly don't know of one guy that currently doesn't bow hunt that is going to run out and get a crossbow, I am sure there are some, but probably not as many as some fear. I sure won't.
