That's good . I already have a crossbow permit for Mass as I am Disabled . Then again Ct. Allowed crossbows not to long ago for anyone. Vermont you can use during the any season where archery gear can be used if you are age 55 or older under 55 you need a disability permit .

Went to a sportsmen show in Springfield Ma this afternoon the Massachusetts bowhunters association had a booth there . Talked to the people at the booth and they said the bill most likely will not come out of the house and they do not want crossbow LEGAL FOR EVERYONE PERIOD they are not happy about it at all.

This is true you got to realize that most of these people are living back in the dark ages where if it is not a vert bow they don't want it . With that in mind if they want to go back then the compound bow is out . One remark that I let go by was they are making the crossbows so narrow and compacted that one could shoot it out of a car window and shoot a deer illegally . If I was to Jack a deer it would not be with a crossbow .

Hoping it happens for you guys! Indiana is a very conservative state, we finally got it done 6 years ago. You might have to pull a few tails real had of it doesn't pass this time around.

It just stupid thinking just like with the crossbow more deer will be taking this would not be all bad in the eastern part of the state as the state is trying to find ways to bring the deer numbers down which is over 20 deer per square mile they want to add more weeks to the archery season out there. I live in the western part of the state and our deer numbers are down in some areas there is less then 5 deer per square mile
