If the crossbow poll in the right side panel of this blog is anything to go by, then crossbow hunting during the archery season has become more acceptable. This is refreshing news for everybody wishing to use a crossbow as a hunting tool. In the poll 79% of my readers voted "YES" to the question, “Should crossbows be legal during archery season?" Only 21% voted "NO". What a turnaround in opinion. If I would have set up this poll a year or two ago the majority of hunters would have voted a resounding "NO", and likely would have spawned a slew of hate emails and comments to the Crossbow Controversy article I wrote on June 28 of this year.
It seems that finally the majority of bow hunters realizes that a crossbow is yet just another archery tool adding variety to our arsenal of hunting choices. Anti crossbow advocates tried hard for many years to slander the crossbow as some sort of gun that has no place in archery. In my article Where I Stand on Crossbows I have listed some of the biggest myths about the crossbow and debunked them with the facts.
I will leave the poll up for a while longer. Keep your votes and opinions on this subject coming. Your voice counts!
