Default What to do with the crossbows.

What shall we do with the crossbows if it is found that they do have a large impact on our deer herd? I am wondering what you think. What do we do if we find that too many deer are being taken or too many buck are being taken prior to the rut? Do you think it is even possible to have too many deer taken in the eyes of our game commission? Should we shorten the archery season? Should we shorten the season for crossbow hunters only? Should we have a crossbow only season? If so, where should it be inserted? Should we reduce the number of doe license allocations? What are your thoughts?

Cross bows will not have a large impact on the deer herd because the PGC controls the herd with the antlerless allocations and harvests. The impact of x-bows will be a drop in the bucket compared to the reducing the herd by 600K deer from 2001 to 2006.

That is pretty stupid answer and will never happen. They will shorten season instead. Toss out 600+$ weapons that people bought after they been aproved. LMFAO. Yea, I see that happening without the PGC buildings getting burned down. Tryagain there little rsb. They are there to stay now in your state.

I can't believe no one said to reduce the doe tags to increase the herd back up. But it must not be an option for the PGC elite forces on here.

The topic was the impact of X-bows on the herd. I simply pointed out that the impact would be insignificant compared to the effects of HR. My comment was directly related to the topic of this thread ,but your last post had nothing to do with the topic of this thread.

With guys paying big bucks for xguns, theyre not gonna take em back now.

Also, no added harvest is too much for pgc to swallow. In fact, they probably welcome it, and is most likely why theyve legalized them in the first place.

"If so, where should it be inserted?"

Id like to tell anti-deer queen pallone + the rest of her posse that voted procrossgun and antideer all along exactly where they can insert it.
