I set this up poll style so you can vote if you'd prefer not to post.

What I'm looking for is a head count of how many guys hunt with a crossbow because you are not able to hunt otherwise.

If you don't mind posting up let us know if you also could use assistance getting to the woods.

I don't have a Crossbow yet, but trying to save up for one . I had much rather use a compound, but the rotator cuff is so bad I can't even pull a youth model:mad2:
I already have the MDC exemption form printed out and will take it to the Doctor on the next visit.

[rquote=2572048&tid=178711&author=deep woods goat hunter]Where's the option for dont have one wont use one?[/rquote]

Since a large part of the reason this website exists is for the benefit of disabled hunters I thought it would be nice to find out how many members we have that meet the exemption for use of a crossbow. Thus I found no reason to add a "don't have one won't use one option". Do you know anyone who would love to bowhunt but can't pull a conventional bow?

[rquote=2572065&tid=178711&author=deep woods goat hunter]not off the top of my head, mobowhunter is a good friend of mine, he crossbow hunted for the first year after his accident, then after he got his strength back switched back to a compound bow. He is still in a wheel chair[/rquote]

Impressive!!!

I can pull one back, but my surgen says I need live the rest of my life thinking about my back. The way i sit, bend, sleep, everything. So by not pulling a bow back I am not stressing my back, which is good. Anytime I can avoid stressing my back I should do so, I think this is a way. Am I wrong for using a crossbow even though I can pull back a compound? I am not even sure of this answer, but the doc says he would recommend it so.

I hunt with crossbow. Least until my hunter crossbow exception runs out then I got's to hope VA doc at that time will ink another one and not be a anti hunter like last 2 docs of mine were.

If I go back to shooting my compound with mouth tab my dentist will stop dental treatments on me.

If you don't like it, let me know and maybe we can work out a deal. It sure would be nice to spend time in the woods during archery season

Thanks

Yeah it was a good deal for me , but felt bad for what traps he wanted , he had $800 in the crossbow , plus true glow scope dozen and a half bolts , 6 broadheads ,, I guess all that matters is that he was happy , this was my neighbor and is on disabilaty, so he was haveing problems ****ing it , it is a 175 lb draw , and its a Parker
