Well, it certainly looks effective and super easy to operate. Where will state game departments put it??? Archery season, firearm season? In my mind it's not archery - it's about as far removed from traditional archery as you can get.

Maybe it's time for archery seasons to be restructured. Originally, archery seasons were very long because with longbows and recurves they had little impact on deer populations, and it allowed bow hunters to have many days of recreation. With the advent of modern compound bows, crossbows, and now this "thing" the odds of getting a deer are just about on par with the rifle seasons - but the "archery" season is just over 10 weeks long compared to 2 weeks for firearm season (here at least). When you add in the ML season of 10 days using 250 yard capable guns, and the early youth and disabled hunts the deer herd really takes a hit.

Oh, almost forgot! Maybe someone should explain to that girl that break open single shot rifles don't have an "upper", they have a barrel.

I did that years ago with a break action .410, till dad caught me Dump out the shot, insert arrow, insert cartridge close and fire. Next step buy new arrow sit in cow tank till my rear end cooled off

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.

When I was young, my dad was shooting arrows out of the Remington S&S I still have.

He made spl. wads and used "hulls" he reloaded, then shot the arrows out of both bbls., so it was still a two shooter.

There was a replacement barrel for a 10/22 that was sold years ago that would shoot arrows. Very few places if any will let you use a firearm to bow hunt. I remember seeing one at a gander mountain around 2000 or so. https://www.go2gbo.com/forums/48-rim...ow-barrel.html
