I am wondering how that affects compound bows, or even crossbows. Do you have any idea why they do this? Seems if they single out traditional gear, there is some reason. Interesting piece of information. Be well.


I’ve deer hunted for years in Illinois with a compound and you don’t “unstring” the compound. You have to put a lock around the cables and the string to keep the string from being pulled back..

I will say, hunting with trad equipment is much nicer up there. I’d rather unstring my recurve and re-string it, than put that dang masterlock around my bow…
