Bow Hunting
« on: March 04, 2014, 09:00:29 PM »
Many communities have deer problems, but don't want guns killing thier deer in town. Should we be buying  bows to quietly kill our supper?

Depends on your local bylaws and if you have the correct hunting license. In many jurisdictions bows are considered 'weapons' under the criminal code and are not allowed to be used within city/town limits.
THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS... ONLY OPPORTUNITIES FOR SOLUTIONS

Unless you have a lot of archery practice, bow hunting is not as easy as it seems. I've seen ( and sadly done) a lot of game wounded at dusk and not been able to retrieve them. Also have found lots of carcasses with an arrow in them. This form of hunting is not to be taken lightly, your neighbors may not appreciate arrows stuck in their lawns( or anything else) In my opinion it's more dangerous than rifle hunting. BTW spent years at it.

I rarely find any deer during deer season, but have 6-12 deer every morning out back door of my work

I imagine the bow does take a lot of skill, but that is a skill I intend to master.  I think the crossbow is a fantastic weapon, mainly because it can be as powerful as a gun, but is quiet and you can retrieve your ammo in a lot of circumstances.  If you get in a pinch, then you can make your own ammo, which is another skill I plan to learn.
