    5. I'm sorry, I must be missing something here, but what the hell are "rigidly controlled internal ballistics?" This would be a term used to describe how a person comes to terms with inflamatory bowel disease.
    Jeeezz! I almost sprayed my screen with the "Unwooded" Chardonnay that I'm sippin' on! Too funny.

    Shocking, isn't it? Medals, ribbons, and accolades do not a hunter make.

    Shocking, I guess to make a sale everything goes. No wonder some hunters think of the crossbow as the magical tool for hunting if they are told crap like that by a so called pro.

    Nope – It’s an opinion shaped on research and experience. As hard as I looked I just never was able to find a shred of factual evidence that would remotely support all the negative hype surrounding the crossbow.

    In no way did I try to belittle you. You have your opinion and I have mien. I meant my remark in good humor.

    A major issue addressed by the summit attendees was the use of crossbows during archery-only hunting seasons. It was immediately apparent that the attendees were unified as being strongly opposed to the use of crossbows in any bowhunting season.

    State and provincial representatives unanimously agreed that crossbows are not bows and should not be allowed in archery-only seasons.


    The red words are the key - anti-crossbow hunters representing anti-crossbow sentiment. Get a like-minded bunch locked in the same room for the same purpose and you'll get the same answer. This does not represent the hunter population but only the avid who look to further improve their own opportunities.

    Hunters today think about themselves, not the hunter population.

    Somewhat inconsistent that causal information is used to cite American sources and disregarded on other occasions when it does not support the argument of the day. I suppose that's the 'chat' part.
