Default Crossbow Haters

The below signed organizations and bowhunting-related businesses have joined the National Bowhunting Summit conferees in believing that, in order to preserve the integrity of bowhunting, it is vital that crossbows not be permitted in bow seasons or archery-only hunting areas.

Awlful funny how all these TRADITIONAL ARCHERY CLUBS are against crossbows when crossbows are more traditional then compounds that were not even around in 1965 and crossbows have been for hundreds of years.

It is just a factor in the SICKNESS of ME FIRST or ONLY ME syndrom.

Joe if I am remembering correctly, it was in 1967 that compounds were developed, and pattened in 1969. At that time, there was such an uproar about compounds it was basically the same as what the crossbows are up against now. For years and years, Pope & Young refused to recognize any deer shot with the compound. Even today, they have a limit for what poundage you are allowed to have for a let off with the compound.

The real funny thing about this is, that if you point all of this out to the compound shooters, they say that it is totally different because they are traditional, when in fact compounds are not a traditional piece of archery equipment at all ..... but crossbows are traditional, just look up the history of the crossbow. Many States are getting to see that this fight it is only a selfish fight with not much truth behind their claims. I have been through this fight many times before and supported my statements with historic data or stats. They totally disregard anything that disputes their claims, even when their claims have nothing to back up what they are saying. I have supplied a lot of information to one person that fought a fight to open up crossbows in his State, he won because they got tired of the untruths that the anti's were spouting.

i guess i'm lucky to live in a state that legalized crossbow seasons very early on i think 1976, ohio has been very good with there deer management and buck management, these guys that fight about whats traditional and whats not are idiots if we dont stop fighting about the means ,the ways will give way to the anti hunting groups and they will have little to talk trash about if we aint got anything to hunt!! i was a uninformed archer who didnt realize the power and the sure coolness of x-bows years ago, i'm glad for a good friend of mine that opened my eyes and helped me understand the value of all types of archery, i truely love archery as a whole i wish some of the guys that are traditional freaks see the light, we are all in this together[:@]

The sad truth is that time and time alone will be the only thing that will solve this issue. It is obvious that crossbows are here to stay, eventually the world will run dry of those who chose hatred over hunting.
