You'd think the great NYCHA would keep its members informed like NYB does. Oh wait I forgot they still don't have a membership!!!!!!

I may get grilled for this, but I reallly don't care.....
I don't like crossbows. Either you want to gun hunt or bow hunt, but choose one or do them both TRADITIONALLY. But wait to chastise me just yet.....I completely understand if you have a condition in which that is the only way you can bowhunt. That I have no problem with, and even applaud for you being out there. But I personally can't stand crossbows. Seems like cheating to me SO there ya go. Fire away boys.

You mean like that 40 year tradition of compounds as compared to 2400 for the crossbow and 3000 plus for wheelless bows?

I can't stand cross, compound, recurve bows or firearms. If you're going to hunt, choose the TRADITIONAL longbow. I completely understand if you have a condition in which that is the only way you can hunt. That I have no problem with, and even applaud for you being out there. But I personally can't stand any hunting implement other than the longbow. Anything else seems like cheating to me SO there ya go. Fire away boys.

I agree, and I would probably be in the same boat as you, except for that I am fairly young and have not had the chance to hunt or even really shoot one. They sound like the coolest thing since sliced bread, and I mean that with all honesty And, I respect your opinon Sylvan

I think alot of the animosity towards x bows, compounds, or guns is based on greed. Some hunters want there to be less other hunter in the woods, so theyll be more game for them, wrong! less hunters, means less hunting, in the future. remember, there is strength in #s. IMO, the only thing a legal weapon should do, is put a 1" hole, or better, through a deer. What difference does it make, how easy it is, or how far away the deer is when its shot?

Poll on the AT shows only 26% of the bowhunters being anti crossbow.
Interesting.

There you go, if it says it on the internet, has to be true. Right
