I don't hate crossbows and have really changed my opinion on full exclusion.It really doesn't bother me at all anymore.However,I do think limitations need to be placed on ALL archery equiptment.The AR15 does look like a cool weapon but it has no business in our early archery season.At this point,the price will keep them out of the hands of most people and their impact would be small.Unfortunately,as technology progresses,weapons like this will be more and more affordable and available.A weapon that can effectively and consistantly take deer at 70+ yards HAS A MUCH GREATER CHANCE OF EFFECTING THE RESOURCE AND SEASON.

This is true...On the other hand, take a a poll and see how many actually buy these things...About as many as would buy a 458 Winchester for the purpose of deer hunting...Few , few crossbow hunters are interested in this kind of firepower, favoring the more mid-line types of crossbows...case in point, Barnett makes a 375 FPS model which is very affordable..Checking out the crossbow threads you will find that few, if any, crossbow hunters use them, favoring the more mid-power Parker and Ten-Point bows, which actually cost more than the Barnett...Excaliburs( which are even less powerful)seem to dominate the market as well.

I disagree completly.I know loads of guys that have to get a new bow every year.They spend 750-900 dollars doing that.

Few people have the Barnetts because they have very poor reviews.

Not turning this into a debate...Some guys DO buy new bows every year...Some buy new cars too...Some folks buy new homes....Most can't.

Why isn;t this thread in the crossbow forum?
The exact same post was made in the X-bow forum a few weeks ago. Not sure why it had to be re-posted here?
