    I'm fine with it, unless your using the PSE Tac-15, thats like cheating... I really like wisconsins stance on it, You can use one if your over 65 or have a doctors excuse. With the efficency of todays bows you dont need to draw 70# or even 60# to kill anything.

    zuba, I don't own, hunt or know too much about bows but, just curious what is it about a PSE Tac-15 that is cheating?

    ICANHITHIMMAN, there's lots of neighboring states...any thought about possibly being able to go where the regs are more relaxed so you can get the wife back into it?

    I've been mulling this over all day, I hate crossbows! But, I think that it should be a legal means to kill game and would support anyone wanting to hunt with them.
    I really like how MT deals with crossbows, you can use them but only during general season and as a hunter you follow general season rules like wearing orange. In MT though we have so much space and such a long season compared to most that FWP can give both bow and general a good long season without people at each other and without having to only hunt with one weapon, I can hunt from opening day of bow to closing of general.
    In my mind the ideal thing would be to have a bow, crossbow/traditional muzzle loader and general seasons without having to choose a specific weapon. In some states this just wouldn't work but it's a general thought.
