Andy, I can't really say that I agree with your statement. Why do you think that we specifcally need more crossbow hunters in the archery season?
In case you did not know it, the crossbow hunters are now killing more deer than the bowhunters. I could not find it now on the ODNR, website, but the last time I saw it there it was roughly a 55% -45% split with the crossbow hunters taking the larger percentage.
There has been a steady increase of hunter numbers on the private land I hunt on and the newcomers all shoot crossbows. Even though there are more deer on the farms I hunt , I still see less deer on the weekends due to the extra hunters in the woods and the hunting style they employ, which is stillhunting. These areas are really not worth my time to hunt on the weekends any more because they run all the deer out. I do most of my hunting during the week now and I see loads of deer when the weekend crossbow warriors are not in the woods.
