I cannot control what other people do in the stand, and I am not even going to try outside of giving them advice on when to shoot, when not to shoot. xbow hunters are not the only ones taking poor shots, compound, longbow, atl-atl, rifle hunters... All of them are capable of taking a bad shot. It's not unique to crossbows. So, if using a cross bow a person can consistantly hit a quarter at 25 yds, instead of a silver dollar with a compound... It makes them that much better at actually killing deer they hit. THat's a good thing if you ask me.
