I agree, it is awesome. I think crossguns are cool. But what is happening to archery as we know it?

The thing actually looks kinda cool as you said but I personally don't want to see it in the woods.

But, In all fairness, I can understand a stickbow guy having the exact same gut reaction to one of the newer tricked out compounds.

How far is too far? Every man has a different measuring stick for this question. That thing went past the end of mine when it comes to calling it archery.

JMHO

I would use it if it were legal in my area...and I do believe crossbows should be legal...but I think they should be legal only in the gun season. They are not traditional archery. Just because you put a sharp point on a stick does not make it archery. If it has a trigger, it is a gun.

If that is archery, then baiting is hunting

Innovation and technology are the American way I guess. Maybe those of us that are under the opinion that archery is about pulling the resistance, and holding the energy in one's arms until a smooth release can be accomplished in the presence of wary game...well, maybe we are just dinosaurs or something. That defines archery to me more than two limbs and a string in exclusivity.

Well if you're a dinosaur, then, so am I. I guess we'll be extinct soon

I am not referring to the visual of "assault weapon". I am talking about how far we will deviate from the original concept of archery season. That thing is not some clunky crossgun. It is an extremely precision "Bolt gun" or spear gun etc.
