    Partially agree, during early season should only be compound unless disabled etc, but up here in the UP in late season it’s darn cold out and a lot of trouble drawing their bow back in it. Oddly enough it’s also the only time it’s forbidden to use in the UP lol

    I would say my biggest issue is, not necessarily a crossbow, well kinda. But it’s more it now brings, 90% of the time, in non serious rifle hunters into bow season. Bow hunters work hard for close quarter shots, scouting, a lot of dedicated time and I have seen/talked to these non serious hunters starting to come into bow season. I always love the early season where you know it’s the people that just love nature and love hunting.

    That's right Tony Ellis. It's about the hunt and not just the kill.
