Sometimes the biggest bucks live on the fringes of the biggest cities. If you’re hunting an urban area the crossbow is an ideal weapon, and here’s why.
Anti-hunters love to vilify sportsmen and one of their go-to invectives is that hunting has eradicated wolves, grizzly bears, elk, bison and a host of other game animals from their native habitat. Here’s a dose of reality, though—the primary reason that those large mammals don’t survive in many areas, particularly in the eastern U.S., is urban sprawl. That’s right. Hunters don’t keep bison and grizzlies at bay. Starbucks, Target, movie theaters and Interstate 75 do.
