lets take dukkillr's idea further
I believe compound bows give an unfair advantage with sights, releases and let off. Archery season should be for traditional bows only If you want to use a compound bow do it during a firearms season. I bet no one is suggesting this, so leave the crossbows alone and let them be used during regular archery or make everybody use traditional bows during archery season. I have used all three types traditional, compound and crossbow. If you want more of a challenge thats fine, a crossbow will only bring more people to archery. A crossbow was the first bow I ever shot yet I have used all 3 for hunting. Some people whine just because more people will be hunting, thats what we need, is more people interested in hunting. A friend at work is buying a crossbow to try hunting for his first time. This is a good thing we need more people hunting.
