I didn't even finish reading it. The guy is a stuck up you know what. I love my compound, and have no interest in hunting with a crossbow, but I am not against them at all, and if you want to use one, please do. It's just another type of bow, and the main thing is that it doesn't crack like a rifle or shoot 300 yards and it won't ruin archery-only season. I don't think the deer would see a difference in it so it wouldn't mess up my hunting with a compound.

Why is the guy so selfish as to not want to share the woods with crossbow hunters? Really I don't think crossbows are messing up his hunting, so it seems like he really is an elitist who thinks he is better. Hope he misses a 180 class buck with his compound this fall...

What I hope is that maybe those that don't bowhunt will get a crossbow. Then maybe will convert to a compound. I saw a lot of crossbow hunters when they first became "legal" but not so much any more. Just don't think they are as much fun to shoot. And as far as being an elitist well maybe but what's wrong with that. You have a sport that you don't want watered down. The same can be held true for any sport. Look at Golf trying to outlaw the long putter. But at the same time I know a lot of folks that think Compounds have watered down Archery with all the speed, needing a release, magnified sights etc. Its all relative.

I've been asking the same thing about any special weapon season and have not read a solid answer yet, besides selfishness that is...

I have no problems with crossbows or crossbow hunters. I don't like the fact that people get a crossbow so they don't have to practice throughout the year. So its not the crossbow, it's the laziness that I don't care for. Not saying those who shoot crossbows are lazy, but if you chose a crossbow strictly because you don't want to have to practice every now and then, maybe you should reconsider bowhunting in my opinion.

I agree with this.

Crossbows aren't for me, but do not care who or who don't use one. I will not use one unless I become physically unable to hunt with regular bows.
I am not sure about this, but for along time in Alabama you had to have handicap documentation to use crossbows during regular bow season. It may not be that way anymore, not sure.
