Crossbows for damage control deer?
« on: July 24, 2023, 05:12:12 PM »
Guess the title kinda says it all, but i was wondering what the legality of using a crossbow for damage control deer is?  In my mind, it should be fine, as theyre modern firearm tags and crossbows are legal in modern season, but also its not really modern firearm season, its its own tag and there really isnt a season on it.  Hell, i dont even know if id do it as its pretty hard to beat a rifle, but would also be kinda fun to shoot one with a crossbow if i had the chance

I draw and fill a 2nd tag in the San Juanís almost every year, and mostly use a crossbow if I end up over there during the firearm season due to weapon restrictions and hippy neighbors. Itís a solid weapon if you need to reach a little farther than you can with a bow and you still need to stay quiet. If you expect shots inside 50 yards, just practice with a bow. If you donít need to stay quiet, use a rifle or shotgun.

Crossbows should count as a muzzleloader  :twocents:
What country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.
