Re: Crossbow regret
Ah yes, a tale of Cash, Cash inclusion and fairy tales.
The PGC got their wish, that wish came in the form of Ca$h. More cash from juicy infusions from the fabled Xbow Mfg's. And more cash from the converted "jealous" gun hunters in the form of "archery" stamp sales and revenue. Cash inclusions from all the "slush fund" capitol the XBow MFG's stashed in the pockets of the PGC to make sure it got passed. Then, have the NRA pile on and have a spin (Even $Hillary would be proud of) that no inclusion of a weapon that was included in just about every other state would be biased. And the fairy tales spun on the "herd management tools" and how it would not make a dent in the over all harvests.
Yup, it is all so clear, as if it was yesterday but in fact it was years ago. But alas boys and girls it is a moot point as the battle for Pa. was fought and the bowhunters of Pa. lost. Cash and capitalism within the PGC ranks got their juicy infusion of Ca$h and the Xbow MFG's got their inclusion. It all worked out, gun hunters can not claim archers shoot all the deer (which was never the case before) and now they get to buy an "archery" stamp and shoot all the deer they claimed we did every year...Yup good times.
