    Just how many seperate seasons do some of you guys want? A short season for trad, then a short season for compound bows, then a short season for crossbows? Or just close all the season you don't want to use and make one longer season your interested type of bow hunting?

    Seems a little one sided.

    I would also like to see the following seasons added:

    Mechanical broadhead season
    Fixed broadhead season
    Hybrid broadhead season

    That makes about 6 seasons to make everyone happy. In Ohio we have a 4 month bow season so each of the 6 seasons would be about 3 weeks long. Now everyone is pissed because of their season is so short.

    For the record I was joking.

    I hunt year round with a compound on private land and honestly couldn’t care less what anyone else does, if they are outdoors enjoying themselves and legal, good on them.

    A crossbow is not a bow, and people who use them are not bowhunters!!!

    @Joe the show Franchise Shooting deer with a compound is certainly less fun and simply not challenging anymore?

    Well if the company that makes them calls them a rifle they are closer to a gun than a bow.

    Just because of poor advertizing wording doesn't make it true.

    So if a company that manufactures the product calls it something it's not? You can not poo poo the point and the companies are not doing themselves any favors. They are not marketed as bows.

    A crossbow is just a compound turned sideways. Both use wheels, both use triggers, both use sights. Semantics game over.
