scentman, you bring back some past to me, I owned a Ross bow a few years ago. I ended up selling it to a co-worker for his son to hunt with. You don't hear of too many hunters using Ross bows. Actually you're the first here, well actually the second.

My Ross is 6 yrs. old and I like to stay with a winner, over the years bows got shorter and some wanted to jump out of my hand... the ross was just a nice fit for me.

getting back back to crossbows, although expensive, and it may be some time before a purchase I think they will be used in NY... maybe shoutgun, and Muzzy season. Most bowhunters are dead set against them during archery and I am on the fence about that subject , I would not mind it myself, but I also see the point from fellow archers.

I don't run into too many archery hunters in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania that are against crossbows in archery season. Pa just allowed their use without a DR's slip. It will happen in NY as quite a few states now allow their use in archery season. With today's top bows prices on compounds vs crossbows very little difference between them unless you go with a ten point fully rigged out at $2000.00. Some of us with bad neck/shoulders will have to resort to crossbows if we want to continue archery hunting down the road.

In Idaho, you can't use a crossbow during regular archery season, so you might want to check your state's regs.

However, you can use it during the "Any Weapon" Season, AKA: Rifle Season.
