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.

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..........

Why would that be snake?  You can't respect the animal and try to kill it at the same time? 

I shoot a mature buck every 2-5 years and I should give up my bow cause i live for it and have the utmost respect for the animal that outsmarts most 9 of 10 times.  How can't you respect the instincts of a big deer?  Sounds like some real words of wisdom to me. 

That comment is as bad as your "best -worst" line " Xbow and v bows are almost identical except for having to draw and hold one back".  Really....now that's minor.  You are so confusingly goofy it's almost sad.

I respect all the deer,  it doesn't have to be a wise buck.  It's fun to watch the doe be vigilant while coming out to feed early because the fawns can't sit still.....just like every kid.  That doesn't get old either.
