HHMMM? Already legal for anyone to use crossbow in Bear, Deer, Turkey season. For ARCHERY season let's make sure we track the seprate weapons to at least see what happens. All I want people to realize is that when they use a crossbow they are not shooting archery equipment. Not as much effort put in and not as much of a challenge. If you like to use them, fine just don't fool yourself into thinking that you were bowhunting.
Mostly it is a sales pitch by industry. It won't bring a lot more hunters, a few maybe will switch. Kids will like it since they will like anything cool and are most gullible to marketing.
10 year old can't bowhunt? I think one needs to plan ahead with the youngsters. Maybe they can use compounds legal enough weight. I started at 12 but was shooting 45 lb.bows before that and I am a weak guy. No one needs 70 lbs for deer so the legal minimum weight should be light enough for most kids.
