Welcome from TN.. I enjoy compound bow hunting better than crossbow hunting but would change to a crossbow (WITHOUT A DOUBT) if thats what it took to get me in the woods for early season..
A camera man isnt bad work either.. Your still out there.. I enjoy doing that stuff as well.. You have to watch yourself with camera so you dont mess up your buds hunt. Still exciting work and beats sitting on the couch..
Welcome from Ohio AA. I'm not a crossbow user but neither am I against them for archery hunting seasons. Properly set and constant practice I see no advantage in accuracy of a crossbow vs a compound. I do agree with states that allow crossbows for hunters with disabilities that otherwise exclude crossbows in archery season. I had a Horton Legend crossbow with a 4X scope and just didn't enjoy hunting with it.
