Wacked one with the Steath SS

I got my first crossbow this week with my Ten Point Stealth SS. It wasn't a big buck & I even let him go the first time he came by. He made the mistake to circle around & come back. He was just a small buck & I decided to "cull" him before he passed on inferior genes..... well that sounds good anyway.

Congratulations!!! Looks like a fine eater to me,

I don't think that crossbows are allowed in NY yet, but I hunt other states too. When I get home I'll look up the regulations & let you know.

Well, I got back home for the NY opening day of regular gun season Saturday, but this is the first chance I've had to return to the forum.

Anyway, I checked the NY regulations & found this:

"Please note: the law allowing use of crossbows expired on December 31, 2012. Crossbows may no longer be used for hunting in New York."

Crossbows were legal last year during the regular (gun) season. Hopefully, they will be allowed again in the future.

I was always against crossbows for archery hunting because I felt that that archery season was supposed to be a primative season, but compound bows changed that. I made the decision to get a crossbow when I started having shoulder problems and could no longer draw a vertical bow.
Life tends to change your attitudes when you get older, I guess.
