The great bow /crossbow debate

Since I have about 2 months to burn being laid up and haven't been on in a while, I figured I would see how some fellow lake linkers feel on the topic of crossbows now that they have been legal in the archery season for a few years. 

I'm interested in knowing WHY (big emphasis on the "WHY")….you either do or don't support having them being a part of the archery season. 

As the thread progresses I figure I'll have chances to support my own thoughts on the topic.

It really comes down to seeing that one group of hunters chances of success be diminished so that another group of hunters chance of success can theoretically be increased. Redistribution of success if you will. Looks good on paper.....

I don't understand the big debate?

There is no big debate, except apparently in certain peoples minds. This is just a thread like any other one, where people put their view and opinion out. I guess everyone is suppose to have the exact same view on the subject, or else they have some big agenda, to take away some right. I have said it on here before, and now once again, I could care less if someone uses a crossbow, and I think most people have that view. That doesn't mean I shouldn't be able to have a view on the subject.  I think madforlabs hit the nail on the head, that there is so much worry that the season could change a bit, that it can't even be discussed without all the distain thrown in. Also to those that keep repeating, It's the law, get over it, are you going to have that same view, if the season is somehow altered.

Kind of like the way you complain about the possibility of having your season modified?

We're all entitled to our opinions. So sorry they don't all agree with yours.

If someone really cares about not letting people use their crossbows, they should not use anything that has advanced in technology. But they won’t do that. They just want to complain about something!

I believe everything L.B. posts on L/L (except his post from about a year ago when he said he would never post here again)

I don't understand the big debate? If it is legal do whatever you would like and stop pissen and moanin about what someone else is doing and enjoy the hunt by whatever method you like..........
