They said they could have ceased my bow the one an only time I flew that route. I told them my CCL covered my bow an they let me go. Strange country, I could have had a hooker bring me bucket of dope, no problem but my recurve was ilegal

Thank God my family had the sense to move to the US from Europe

The quest to improve is so focused on a few design aspects & compensating for hunter ineptness as to actually have reduced a bow & arrow’s effectiveness. Nothing better demonstrates this than mech. BHs & speed fixated designs

Remember that all Europe is not the same. I live in the Czech Republic and buying knives and archery equipment is no problem at all. Most people carry a pocket knife. It is not difficult to obtain a gun license and buy guns. As a foreigner I had no problem getting a license to carry concealed. It is supposedly easy to import guns from the U.S.
Just like in the U.S. where some states have ridiculous and others don't, countries in Europe have different laws and culture when it comes to weapons and hunting.

We still can't bowhunt here though. [Confused]

@ BUFF (or anyone who knows). Bud, I am coming across to the USA via the Netherlands in June - and obviously bringing my bow and some arrows. Did you check your bow in as luggage, or hand-luggage? And did you stay over or just transition at the airport? Thanks.

I was just changing planes there. They called me down to customs about my bow and wanted to see papers from my state showing I was allowed to own a weapon.

@BUFF Was that checked-in luggage or hand luggage? You've got me worried :-)

It was checked luggage. If I had to go thru there again, I would pack my bow in a duffle. It was in a pelican case, I think they noticed it because it looks like a gun case
