Are crossbows here to stay?

This may be a dumb question, but is there ANY chance the PGC could eventually decide to make xbows illegal again w/out a disability permit? I don't see it ever happening, but it's always been there in the back of my mind. There still seems to be a significant portion of the general hunting population who view them as 'cheating' or 'unethical'.

From what I understand, there is overwhelming support for the crossbow by both the general hunting community and the Commission.

There seem to be a lot less wounded deer in archery season also.

Have gun, will travel.

Don't see it happening. The national trend is inclusion, not exclusion.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Dont see the crossbow ever going away , what i believe you will see is a adjustment to the length of the season , IMO archery season is no longer considered a low harvest impact season.

Save a wolf , take one to the taxidermist

LOL! I'll give up my cross bow when they give up tree stands.

The spirit of our day is a soft acceptance of everything—except deep conviction in anything.
