I believe it is also unethical. As hunters, we have a responsibility to kill our game as quickly and humanely as possible. Why would a government agency try to hinder that? IMO it goes against their intentions.

IMO they should be required for everybody over six.

it would go against the handicap rules,,,,not having good vision can be considered a handicap, thus, the reason I must wear glass to focus on anything up close,
with that handicap I cant focus on the standard gun sites, as they blur in my vision.

scopes are needed I think, why put people with issues with their eyes in the situation? we shouldn't. and its safer to. and it puts the animal at risk also. if you don't want a scope don't put one on there and safe some money but I don't think they should make you shoot iron sights.

Good points.

If you can't see well how can you use a gun or bow with iron sights?

Since we have Muzzleloader season I don't see this as an issue. However if we called it Primative weapon well I can see the point in not allowing scopes.

We don't. I have scopes on everything, including my crossbow. It really sucks being able to see just fine at a distance, but having to have glasses on to see anything within arms reach. Then, if you have reading glasses on, everything at a distance is blurry.

I have to agree with the "not being able to see the open sights" bit these days. Since 2010, I have finally had to use a scope on my ML's. Just gettin' too blurry to make a good shot anymore.

Dang, just read the previous post/quote. I CAN see out to 30 yds, which is the max distance I will shoot my bow at a deer...it's the 50+ yd shots that I need the magnification on.
