Riddle me this x-arrow gun shooters. Why not make the whole hunting season, "weapon of choice". Guns, selfbows, spears, whatever you want. Even an arrow gun

I find it amazing how old vertical hunters turn into the most ardent crossbow supporters once they can no longer draw back their bow.

Their disapproval list can go on and on but the states just keep opening up to crossbows and their owners wallets.

The DNR doesn't care about v-bow versus x-bow, they care about the greenback. If they don't sell enough tags they won't be able to keep their jobs. Period.

Seems that 75% of this entire topic is a violation of the forum rules... 8, 10, 12 & 13 just to name a few.... how about closing it and moving on!

i'm not a hater of someone's preferred way to hunt - to each their own as long as it's legal. i'm not going to argue to the point of trying to make a hater into a liker - if they don't like a certain way you probably won't be able to change their mind. whether it makes aiming/shooting a little easier or harder is that persons choice, as long as it's legal. i'm so glad i live in ohio because the way it is set up here everyone who hunts here has an equal chance/opportunity. there's no argueing on having special or separate seasons for horizontal and vertical bowhunters. (the next arguement you guys will have on that is why is their season first or why do they get the better time frame of the hunting season) there is arguement of slob/careless hunters - well people/fellow hunters there are slob/careless hunters in every way of hunting. i'm sure alot of it is from first year hunters making mistakes,(we've all been there). there's also the uneducated(not being taught/shown by experienced hunters). and then there are those few that just don't care or poach. ohio has an excellent deer management program. if your state has low deer numbers, it's not really the hunters fault - it's your states deer management mainly because they are the ones that figure out how many deer they'll let you kill. IMO - i think ohio should be a role model state(hunting related) for all the other states!!!!!!!

I have no idea what an arrow gun is, but if it were legal I would sure be in line to try one!
However, for the rest of your masterminded riddle, I don't think I would want to be in the woods geared for an archery hunt if there were hunters with guns out there too. I like the way it is handled where I live, we have a long archery season that has three small interruptions for shotgun hunters to pass through. However, when the shotguns come out the archers have to vacate the bush.
I guess to answer your riddle I would say the downfall to mixing bows with guns is a safety issue, I could explain the difference between a bullet and an arrow, but I know that if you were capable of comprehending the answer you would never have asked the question in the first place.

hope this helps on REAL REASON..
I disagree with your opinion. I have shot both and the new compounds use very little skill. the ONLY advantage of the crossbow is it is ready to fire and you don't have to draw when your shot presents its-self! If you want to talk about skill-try shooting a longbow instinctively!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
