I hate crossbows with all my heart. Shoot a gun or shoot a bow. Don't shoot a gun that shoots an arrow and tell me its a bow.

I have no problem with those who shoot crossbows, but do not call them archery. They should be hunted in the rifle season, not any archery or primitive weapons season. However, the biggest problem with all our thoughts and objections is simple - MONEY TALKS.
I agree Rob. I do not hate Cross bows, or Cross Guns or Air Guns who shoot arrows. They just do not belong in Archery season.
Manufacturers just know however they do not have a chance to sell these things if they are solely included in Rifle season.
Aside from all the debates about whether these things are OK for archery season, I fear all the municipalities who have allowed Archery within their borders as far as practice, did not have the Crossgun in mind.
You'll live longer!
