For 1 ) Crossbow use in your states archery season.
Against 2) state imposed antler restrictions.
For 3) 223rem for deer hunting(within reasonable range).
Against 4) headshots on deer (past 100yds).
For 5) legally killing animals you dont intend to eat.(meaning unedible game- yotes,coons,diver ducks, etc....)

gee Im not a moderator so i really have no right to tell people what to write but i must say, im rather befuddled as to why people keep referring their particular states laws about rifles shotguns or muzzleloaders. the question is, do you think a 223, within reasonable range, is sufficient for deer hunting, thats it. whether youre personally allowed to use it is irrelevant. I also understand people eat all kinds of stuff that most other people wont, but im just asking if in general, you would kill something you wouldnt eat, sorry if i confused anyone by saying a particular animal was inedible.

I just thought it would be interesting to see how many people are for or against common stuff we debate here, w/ out doing separate polls or having an in depth discussion about them.

sorry to rant, but I just want to keep it on track, all in all pretty good so far, keep em coming

1) A/F I didn't at first because of the way the PAGC went about implementing it. But I do think it would enable kids to participate in archery who can't draw the required weight back so for that it is good, To provide those with access to a season they had been too lazy to participate in before I say I don't support the lazy whether they are hunters or not.
2) F/A If not for an AR we wouldn't have hardly any deer left, The AR saves some young buck while it also kills off those 1 1/2 yr old bucks with better genetics allowing the scrubs to have a chance to do more breeding
3) F, sure because most that would hunt with such a caliber would most likely be those hunting smaller targets at far ranges. the 223 is easily capable of taking out a person at 500 yds with iron sights, I think a precision shot at 100 is reasonable. If the person is a poor shot they are a poor shot no matter what weapon they use and I don't see the 223 resulting in more unrecovered animals. If you don't feel confident with a small caliber than you would shoot a 30-06/ 7mm or something of the sort.
4) F for reasons I stated above, if the weapon is set up for that range then go for it if you are confident.
5) F How else are you going to control the populations and limit the spread of diseases most these animals carry?

I already addressed that,but i guess typing an F or A is an unreasonable request for some.

That said id like to see you coon eaters grill up a greasy, old, stank racoon and eat it although I guess if you throw enough BBq sauce or brown sugar on something itll swallow down.

Mmmmmmmmmm..... Coon. Not getting the hard part of the simple letter system. I believe it has to do with the modern decline of "listening" and increase in " waiting to talk"
