HB 2234 Draw-Loc Auth'n / Crossbow Definition

Just introduced yesterday:

http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/bill...e=B&bn=2234

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

I already sent him an email and suggested he might get a little more respect from hunters in PA if he went to a commission meeting and asked for these things rather than write a bill and essentially demand them.

He's slated to be the next democratic chair of the House Game and Fish committee.

That's great! Lets turn compound bows into crossbows! Might as well call it Crossbow season and outlaw Compounds! Wow.

I think that is the direction we are heading towards. If you look at Ohio, the majority of archery hunters use crossbows. In time, so will the hunters of PA .
I am not saying I am in favor of it, but I do not see how it can be justified to have crossbows legal and not draw-locs.

Do you know there is a manufacturer of compound bows that make a compound that locks at full draw. To shoot, you simply overdraw and the bow releases and is held at full draw normally and released normally. I can't think of the name of the manufacturer but they brought a bow to the bureau of law enforcement to see if they could get it legalized in PA I shot one of them.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
