Re: Ethics: Crossbow vs. Compound Bow
I kind of agree with oldtimer on this one, it's more about
the shooter than the weapon. Which is easier to get good at
shooting? The crossbow. With any weapon you should practice
with it so you are efficient with it. However; the crossbow
is alot like a gun and can be taken out of the box, sighted
in with a few shots. Traditional bows take more practice.
You must get your form, aim point, and release right. Plus
it takes some time to build the muscles needed to shoot a
bow well, a crossbow can be rested on something just like a
gun. I have shot both and it's easier to shoot a crossbow
well consistantly than it is a compound bow. Both are
ethical hunting weapons designed to do the task at hand,
it's up to the shooter to shoot it well enough to hunt with.
I'd rather be fishing or hunting!
