Don’t Hate The Crossbow

Crossbows are currently enduring what compound bows battled years ago; claims that their use will decimate deer herds and ruin the “sport” of archery. The same goes for 60 percent let-offs. The old stick-and-string was simply becoming unrecognizable to the elitists and purists of archery, and they didn’t like it.

They dug in their heels and whined and moaned about the impending deer population apocalypse that compound bows would bring. Well, 60 percent let-offs are here, compound bows are the norm and guess what: deer hunting has never been better. Period.

What’s even more interesting is that participation in hunting and the outdoors is up 9 percent from 2010-2011, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s latest national survey.
