You argue like an fricking invalid. Aren’t you an attorney? I assume you never see a court room. Crossbows have been around since regular bows. They were very prominent in medieval times. Why would a high tech crossbow be less primitive than a high tech compound bow? Oh that’s right. They’re not.

This makes no sense.

You assume poorly.

So fricking what?

This isn't even related to what you claimed before . You're dumb and an arse to boot. Winning combo there tard.

There’s some of those stellar argumentative skills.


How is a compound bow more primitive than a crossbow?

I don’t care what anyone hunts with as long as it’s legal but there is definitely a difference between a medieval cross bow and today’s hell there’s a huge difference between compounds today and the ones i shot in 1986. That being said I have a cross bow and have shot pigs with it I hunt with a cross bow and just started back shooting a recurve ( used one for years and killed numerous deer with one) .
Each one in my opinion is is progressively harder to kill deer with.
Recurve needs lots of practice to be proficient, short range shots and a lot of things that can make for a missed chance ( form, not being able to hold at full draw, needing deer so close you get busted)
Compound is easier to shoot and takes less reps to stay proficient.
But still you have to draw that sucker and hold it and can sometimes pull a shot even if you range it and have yardage sometimes you draw and the deer don’t offer a shot and you let down and get busted.
Crossbow is easy, there’s a reason the ol boy borrowed one to go shoot tbat deer. He knew he couldn’t killl it with a regular bow so he borrowed a cross bow he had never shot and killed it.
There’s no argument with tbat because he said it. Hats off to him for doing the right thing and following the law (he could have used a gun)
But there is a difference between that archery kill and all other archery kills.

I like to use a crossbow when we release the walker hounds.

Come on Perry Mason. Explain your assertion that a modern compound bow is more primitive than a modern crossbow. We’re waiting.

re: New Louisiana Record Buck by Crossbow?
I won't argue the "primitive" nature of either, but one definitely takes a lot more practice and skill. My wife got a crossbow, shot it 3x and went and smoked a doe @ 35yds, with deer all around on first sit this season. MFer is like a rifle at short ranges. It's pretty damn impressive.

On topic, congrats to that guy. Hell of a deer.

I believe that the " Look At Me " stardom seeking in deer hunting is a true sickness. It should be in the American Psych Association Manual.

I know people who are suffering from this. Giant in your face Facebook page. Multiple Wildlife Violation priors. Coupled with coming from the entitlement generation, it is a disaster .

Gone are the old deer camp days when people just hunted for themselves. Quarter the thing up, put in freezer, go cut grass. End of story. No " look at me " mentality

Look at the pose of this guy, so proud, and read the interview.

After reading second link, guy should not be proud. Still nothing new though.

And back in the “ol days” people didn’t drive around with deer on their dog box or in the bed with the tailgate down, showing it off to everyone, till the flies would almost carry it away. Newspapers didn’t have sections devoted to “braggin pictures”. Every country store and sporting goods store didn’t have braggin boards for people to put up their pictures with their deer.

No, people just started braggin and showing off their deer in the last few years. Those dang spoiled kids!

While I agree with your premise, you might want to click the next link posted there. He killed it at night, from the road...

Thanks, I had skipped the second blind link. That does change things. It is a hell of a deer and I hate he went out that way. There are a lot of stupid aholes. But it didn’t just start. I remember when I was a kid a guy shot one of the big bucks in the fence at Tannehill Park outside Birmingham. That was 40 years or so ago. And another guy shot a giant well known buck out of a pen outside of Montgomery 30? Years ago. He got an extraordinary sentence because of all his prior convictions. So it hasn’t just started.

The only thing that's recently started is social media and it's done way more harm than good, it seems.

It has made it more visible for sure. The problem is, if you are going to make a living in the hunting or fishing entertainment industry (whether TV, or guiding/chartering, or running hunts), you just about have to have some kind of social media presence.

No one should be making a living with what was just a rural pastime, except maybe guides.

I don’t think social media got that Tensas buck killed. Maybe a few too many cold pops at the Cooterville bar did?
