I noticed in the book they made it legal to hunt turkey now with a crossbow. Sounds like fun thinking about giving it a try.

I see NO challenge hunting turkey with a crossbow, it's just like shooting a gun.

I don't understand why they legalized hunting them with a crossbow but took away handguns. Makes absolutely zero sense.

It's consistent with most regulations thrown at us these days.

It actually makes a lot of sense. They make AR15's now that are considered pistols according to the ATF. They didn't want rifle hunting for turkeys, so they had to outlaw pistols. If anything is dumb, it's ATF definitions of firearms.

they could of made any AR platform illegal without screwing with the rest of the real hand gunners.

I think in Florida you can use a rifle not sure. TSS gives you 70 yards average crossbow 30. Who has the advantage? Whatever makes you 😁.

Turkeys should be shot in the face, with a shotgun

The Ravin's could possibly be a 100 yard weapon with some practice and a good scope. All other crossbows should be 50 yards and in. I have a Mission and I wouldn't shoot at one over 50 and don't like to shoot at anything over 40.

What's the effective range on a crossbow shooting a TSS tipped bolt?

As heavy as that stuff is, it's probably 12 feet.

Dats Bovine Scat, only someone who has never used a crossbow would say that. Its much harder than a gun. You have to know your exact yardage, your setup, and turkey have good eyes. There is such an abundance of turkey everywhere, it seems like you could use whatever weapon you choose.

Just another topic for folk to exert their supremacism attitudes. I will say the “crossbow” gets the most flack of any weapon, it just ain’t fair slap
