    Ahhh Grasshoppa, much more stealthy! :D

    I'd have to shop around out here, not much for any type of hunting shops near me. That is, unless you'd consider a bait and minnow place a sporting goods store. Uh...nope.

    Dang, for $7.00, I'd buy that just for fun!

    I was just checking legalities of bows, crossbows, and pistol grip crossbows, and found, according to the DNR, a bow must be a minimum of 30 pound, or a cross bow at 100 pound minimum for...deer?

    Geeze, I guess I may have underestimated the power of a bow?! I would never have guessed a 30lb bow would take down a deer, unless it was an amazingly accurate (aka, deadly) shot. What, neck shot to the jugular? Eyeball shot into the brain?!

    guess I can't use my 'WAMMO' crossbow for dear hunting (it is only a #70 draw). arrows use a different method than bullets blood loss/shock to cause death, so major blood vessel or a heart shot is what you're looking for with bow hunting. I do have a #60 bow, but no broadheads, no hunting deer for me(with a bow, I do have other options though).
