Guns and crossbows are more alike than bows are to crossbows.

I'm saying if you have a problem with guns, then you appear silly to be cool with crossbows since they're so similar to guns.

Crossbows and guns are way easier to aim. It's a trigger, next to your finger.

Bows are different.
I think you just trying to force an argument. He said it, you understood it, you stated your believes yourself, and now off you go.

The vast majority of bow hunters use a release when shooting their bow. This is a trigger mechanism that hooks onto the string and allows you to tap a "trigger" to release the string. Regular bows and crossbows are more similar than you think. If you were a hunter you would know this.

Also I have no problem with the "look" of guns, my problem with them is the LONGER RANGE and the fact that they are more dangerous.

Once again I am talking about the RANGE the weapons can SHOOT.
NOT what they LOOK LIKE.

I will be purchasing this crossbow shortly.

Xbows are officially legal again in NY for the latter half of bow season and all of gun season!

I have always been against gun hunting, I feel it is unfair to the animal. This will give another option for hunters during this season. You need to be within 40 yards to make a clean kill with a crossbow, with most not taking a shot over 30. Hunters are a dwindling minority, so if you have some interest get out there!

Humans invented guns, therefore humans have the right to use their guns vs other species. Survival of the fittest. If you believe in Darwin, you have to also believe in hunting.

I bought the Covert SLS last year and after 1 hour of hunting, the moose was down for the count

I hope the result will be the same this year

Chances are I would end up injuring the animal and not killing it, therefore causing it to suffer. Hunting is all about trying to make a clean and humane kill.

Strangling would not accomplish that.
