    BCWF supports BAN on crossbow scopes

    In the new proposed regulation changes for the upcoming bow season, BCWF has given there support to banning crossbow scopes, this would effectively ban crossbows for alot of current hunters....VERY SAD

    let’s just quit supporting BCWF. They will never get another penny from me, too many fools in their ranks.

    Re: BCWF supports BAN on crossbow scopes

    And to think only a few weeks ago many on here condemned & accused Foxton Gundogs of sensationalizing the proposed "secret" crossbow ban now who has egg on their face!!!!!!!

    Neither the BCWF, BC Outdoors or other groups promoted on this site and elsewhere as supposedly representing hunters rights or being hunter friendly actually do represent them at all. Simply follow the money trail and it will eventually lead to some at best dubious partnerships.

    I have personally spoken on here with people who claim to be hunters yet still support more firearm control and to all I say wake up, when we allow & create division in our own ranks it only helps the various groups who want to destroy our way of life. These issues are not only directly related to firearms and hunting but encompass things such as tail docking in dogs which now prevents many responsible & ethical breeders from breeding dogs and over the next few years the blood lines that they have striven so hard to create in Canada will die out.

    And as for anyone supporting firearm control what do you think will happen to the gun stores or the price of ammunition when they can no longer sell hand guns or the ammunition for them?

    Do not forget about your friends who work in these stores and who have done so for years and who give good, sound, reliable advice on a daily basis for free.

    Unless ALL HUNTERS, FISHERMAN, FARMERS, OUTDOORS PEOPLE, OUTFITTERS, GUIDES, DOG TRAINERS, OUDOOR STORES ETC. stick together & stop all the infighting their will be nothing left.

    And finally to all the First Nations out there who frequent this site you too need to be united in this fight with the aforementioned because make no mistake once the resident hunters are extinct, all guns will be gone, your usefulness will come to an end and you will be next with no one left to fight for you.

    with representatives from the B.C. Wildlife Federation, Guide Outfitters Association of B.C., B.C. Trappers Association, Wild Sheep Society, Wildlife Stewardship Council, and United Bowhunters of B.C.
    , Why single out BCWF as the bad guy? If the proposal didn't have traction, it would be on the floor instead of the table

    I think the reason the bcwf is being made the bad guy is because certain members who give the appearance of being ‘in the know’ denied - or maybe deflected - its support of measures to remove crossbows from the bow season.

    I personally don’t mind the ban as crossbows just don’t seem to honour what the regulation was aiming for - although I’m not a huge fan of a bow only season to begin with - but is the Fed ignorant or deceptive? Neither seems a good option for a sportsmen’s representation.

    they want to be portrayed as the voice of residents, and then quietly support or not raise there opposition to it publicly then as a resident who else would be the “ bad guy”. Be interesting to see who bcwf phatat reps got there marching orders from. Pretty clear from the proposed reg changes that the old boys club and their not so secret partners continue to fail supporting hunters and wildlife

    As pretty much all crossbows rely on a scope to target game accurately this is effectively a ban on crossbows during bow season is it not?
    IMO it’s a douchey way of pushing through a crossbow ban.
