Pennsylvania Game News - May 2014 - 58

to realize that the crossbow gives me
the best and most efficient chance to
do that. Proficiently shooting a compound bow and especially a recurve or
longbow takes the kind of dedication,
effort and practice time that the circumstances of my life just don't allow.
Sure, I could lug a compound or recurve
into the woods, cross my fingers and
force sloppy shots at deer, but I don't
think either of you would want me in
the woods doing that anymore than
you would let yourselves do it. I need
to have confidence in any shot I take,
and a crossbow affords me that. In the
end, you owe at least that much to the
game you're after."
Camsareon shook his head. "I'd say
that's more a matter of shot selection
and the margin of error involved more
than the equipment you're using. Just
don't take any iffy shots."
"You got that right," chimed Stringer suddenly throwing Boltin a smug
look. "But I got me two other pretty
important fellas who got strong opinions about your so-called bow."

"Who?" shrugged Boltin.
"Mr. Saxton Pope," said Stringer
with a smile, "and Mr. Arthur Young.
You know, the Pope and Young Club
guys. According to them, only longbows, recurves and compounds - at
least most of them - count as acceptable gear for taking trophy animals for
their record book. So far as legitimate
archery is concerned, they've banned
crossbows like yours, Boltin. You want
to get in the record book using that
thing, it'll have to be with the Boone
and Crockett Club with the rest of
the firearm hunters. That there says
something."
Boltin nodded, smiled politely, and
stood up. It was getting late. Sunup
would come early tomorrow and each
man wanted to be settled in his hunting stand well before first light. The
three wished each other good luck and
headed out, each firmly convinced his
own testimony had won the day, and
each hoping it would lead the other
two to finally come to their senses.
Question is, would they?

It's the Law:
Q: What do I need to possess to use the Game Commissionowned shooting ranges?
A: Permits are required for individuals who do not possess a valid Pennsylvania
hunting or furtaking license to use game lands shooting ranges, including designated clay bird shooting areas. Range permits will be issued to persons 16
years of age or older. A permitted person is allowed one guest. Permits must be
in possession, but do not have to be displayed. Permits are $30 and must be
purchased by credit card through The Outdoor Shop on the Game Commission
website, or at PGC region offices and Harrisburg headquarters. Permits are
effective from July 1 through June 30 each license year.
