I think that the use of compound bows for deer hunting is great. The compound bow made the hunting with bow and arrow practical, so that it is not foolish to try. But it is still a challenge and the individual hunter must be skillful. I would like to see tougher restrictions on hunting deer with firearms to encourage hunters to use a compound bow. This would put more sport into hunting and enable the deer hunting season to be longer without endangering the species of deer.
