I hear what you are saying George but I thought the whole idea of hunting was to control the wildlife populations ... I see nothing wrong with making it easier for someone to get game, we could all go back to using clubs and rocks to hunt with but what would be the point ... the fact is, DNR people want X number of deer harvested per year and the best way to do that is to allow various means of taking game, the method is not the issue to DNR people its the result. I for one think technology results in cleaner kills with less lost game. I would like for someone to define the world traditonal, because that varys quite a bit from one part of the country to another. I for one don't buy into the Traditional non traditional hunting debate. If you want to make it harder on yourself that is your choice, but I can't see where people have the right to make it harder on others. I hunt and fish for the enjoyment I get out of it as I am sure you do the same. I used to hunt with a handgun because I loved the fact that I could spend hours trying different bullet and powder combinations, coutless rounds fired checking bullet speed with a chronograph, and took pride in taking game with a load that I personally developed .. to me that was as much fun as the hunt. Enjoyment should be the bottom line not the method. If it were left up to traditional hunting to control game we would be swamped in game and have starving deer and road kills everywhere.
