just tell you can still tag deer with the more primitive weapon. like you got more skill and talent than him.. im sure he will like that. unless you miss then take his crossbow from him.

No skill huh? just like shooting a gun dont take any skill either you need to aim hold it steady, and all at the moment of truth. "I dont need to use a crossbow thank the Lord" but I have shot my uncles and it isn't as easy as it looks.

i dont own one the are illegal to hunt with in Ny unless your handicapped.I see no reason why they should be banned though.I dont think they should be allowed during bow season,during firearms or muzzleloader seems fair though

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
