I understand your worry when Oklahoma introduced crossbows our deer herd was at a all time high and the herd numbers remain high(except for sections of the western half of the state which are down slightly due to drought but still have plenty of deer in those areas). I'm sure if California introduced crossbows it wouldn't help the deer herd but I also doubt it would have as big an effect as the drought,high predator numbers, and other natural causes. Also if you don't mind I would like to ask your feelings on the California fish&game. I've heard some real horror stories which makes them sound almost anti hunter is this true? Do you think the policies of California fish&game have contributed to the declining deer herd?
