I'm not 100% sure on the Facts, but considering cross-gun hunting has been legal in Ohio for a lot longer than PA, I'd venture to say they have more hunters using them then we do.

You are correct. 35+ years. There is a reason OH residents are sick of their Management of the Herd. The crossgun craze has ruined the sport of archery. Any slob can walk into a store and start slinging bolts 50 yards in a day.

We had the same attitude towards the compound bows and any dummy can aim a bow with sights set for different yardages and light up to boot. When I first saw a recurve bow I didn't like them either. But believe me as you get older you'll start to take short cuts too if you want to continue to hunt. The only rule I ever kept was that I'd never use an ATV to hunt but now I can't even hunt without a babysitter.

Indiana_Bob There is a reason OH residents are sick of their Management of the Herd. The crossgun craze has ruined the sport of archery.

LOL. Ohio remains a destination state for whitetail deer for archery hunting. Yes, there are less deer, as there is in many midwest and eastern states. Heck, Iowa and Illinios hunters are stating concerns about decreasing deer populations and crossbows are not legal in Iowa and restricted in Illinois.
 
 Any slob can walk into a store and start slinging bolts 50 yards in a day.

 
And any slob can walk into a store and start slinging 29 inch arrows from their new Mathews at 50 yards in a day. And any slob can walk into a store and start shooting 150 grain coreloks at deer at 300 yards in a day.

Yep. Since the vertical crowd embraced all of the new technologies to make their hunt easier and their bows easier to shoot, the two weapons are close when it comes to end game hits, misses, recoveries, and losses, according to published data. 
 
For those that choose to review some data. This is rather lengthy and don't remember what page the crossbow versus compound data is on, but it is in there.

Not at all. Just an opinion. A crossbow will never be permitted on our property. Just made a statement, seems like the lazy slob crossgun hunters are butt hurt. I just stated they should be banned.

You quit hunting in pa because of weapons others are legally allowed to use? How is it the other hunters are butt hurt?

Not because of weapons.. Hunters themselves. I see comprehension is tough for you, I guess I was right.....

And what do you have other than insults to add some clarity to your side of the issue? This would be the second time I asked. You become smaller with each post which is the opposite of what you think you are portraying.
 
If you would like to discuss air rifles and semis, I am all ears. As far as continuing to participate in your petty war, you can direct your malcontent towards someone else. I think most have learned all they need to about your opinions on that subject.

I don't like to jump into the middle of these types of frays, but I think I have to jump in with my $.02 and agree with Hoosier Bob.  I too will no longer be allowing crossbows on my property.  Why weren't compounds good enough?  But then again, I'm not allowing compounds either, go back to recurves.  Of course recurves are improvements on long bows, so just long bows are allowed.  I am getting rid of modern rifles too.  Whatever happened to muzzleloaders?  Of course, I need to specify no in-lines, they are too modern and advanced too!  But then again, flintlocks are technologically superior to the old matchlocks, so no flintlocks either, just matchlocks.  I always wanted to do a spear season, but I see this new development in spears called the Atlatl and I'm afraid someone might bring one of them, so no spears either.  And knives, don't even get me started!  It was so much simpler when swords were made of wood, but now....Sweet Jesus, I wouldn't even know where to begin banning bladed weapons; so they are all out!!  In fact, now that I think about it, how about clubs?  Isn't that where it all started?  Isn't the true essence of hunting the club?  I'm banning everything but clubs on my property!!!  Of course, only true, unaltered. natural wooden clubs!!  No aluminum baseball bats trying to be passed of as "sporting" clubs.  No improved clubs; they just have to be as you picked them up!  So there it is, on my property next year I am allowing only un-improved wooden clubs and hand dug pit traps!  If the pit traps make it too easy to harvest trophy bucks, I am cutting them out too!!  PM me if you would like to hunt my property.  You should probably get working on digging your pit as soon as we get a thaw and of course, I will have to inspect your club before I allow you to hunt!!    Sorry Indiana_Bob, there does seem to be a lot of butt hurt in your life; maybe it is justified, maybe you need to share it with someone. The first step to recovery is admitting there is a problem and identifying it.

Maybe clubbing the troll would be more prudent? Lots of good discussion until a hater showed up to take the thread a totally different direction with slights.

Heard some more chatter about the upcoming Board of Commissioner meeting. It does appear semi use will be moving forward in several instances if the current discussion prevails. Should be interesting.

Too early yet. Usually a few weeks before the meeting so around mid January.

Hopefully the troll/hater comments are directed in another direction.  The banality of arguing among ourselves as to which methods are or should be legal is ridiculous.  Hunting comes under enough scrutiny from the outside, and they definitely don't need any help.  So let's support each others right to hunt when and how we like.  Now, if you disagree with the management of the deer herd, I believe I just read there is an upcoming BOC meeting.  Go there and seek the changes you would like to see.  But as sportsmen/sportswomen and conservationists, let's support each other in the public eye and debate each other in private.

Question? I was at Wally's World yesterday and saw these Gamo and Ruger pellet guns in both .177 and 22 cal. Are these the small game air guns you're talking about? If so how noisy are they? When I shoot groundhogs trying to raid my garden the one neighbor gets upset! Never turns down free veggies!. Which gun do you guys feel is better the Gamo or Ruger? I did notice Gamo was twice the price, who have doesn't always mean better.

We are not sure what the official proposed regulations will be until the January meeting but, yes, those air rifles would be potentially legal. They talked about setting a minimum fps of 1200 and 22 cal or smaller. If this ends being what is proposed and approved, as long as those rifles are 1200fps or higher, they would be legal.
 
I like PCP air rifles better but they are more expensive. These can be $500 bucks up through several thousand. PCP stands for pre charged pneumatic. These have a large tank that is charged with compressed air that can be fired without breaking the barrel or working a pump.
 
I have a FX Verminator Extreme air rifle. A high end air rifle.
