I'll be there,
Shot a borrowed "1997" darton the last 3 years (killed 3 deer)
This year I have my "own" bow, a PSE FS light.
Gues I will hit Calvert Cliffs or BARC.

I was going to go to Pat River park, but MD is allowing Cross Bows in regular Archery season (Mont, How, AA, PG Counties)
I was at BPS today picking up refills for the Therma, The Cross bows where "flying" of the shelfs.
Talked to one of the Archery sales staff, he said he had sold over 100 CB's in the last 2 weeks, A lot to people that have NEVER hunted before.
Will cross bows change public land archery season as we know it ?

I for one hate the fact that anyone can now use a crossbow. It does infact make hunting easier then with a "real" bow. Now any "Yahoo" who would only gun hunt will now be in the woods messing everything up. The whole reason behind this move is to get control of this deer population that isgrowing out of control. But come-on why a crossbow [:@]. Leave a crossbow to the handicap [8D], like it used to be.

Yup will be out Monday morning .

For thoses who hate the fact that x-bows are allowed the whole season now .... how about you do you part and kill more deer . Until bow hunters are able to keep the heard in check I really don't want to hear no crying about x-bows this and making gun season longer . Chew on that for a bit

We cant keep the heard in check, if we do not have access !!
Problem with Mont and How county is Access to COUNTY and STATE land !
So we can hunt 3% of the total public park land, I have watched 50+ deer stacked up on the "no hunting" side of howard chapel rd (this is still public land)

So how is a bunch of "un skilled" slobs with cross bows tromping around the woods going to help the kill #'s in Archery season ??

Before any one starts throwing "snob" etc around, yeah I am one

I spent 6-7 years in gun season learning the ropes, then another 5 in ML refining my hunting, now I am breaking into archery with 12 years of skill to back me up, Yeah I am a snob, but I earned it
