Those who make that call are usually the one that poaches! Can't use a rifle around the house, so why not use what you have? It's a lot of funhmmm....cmon now just tell the truth..
We all know it's really for that special nocturnal buck that's coming to that feeder behind your garage(in the picture..lol)
Using the tripod and a $2500 rig to make a 20yd shot on a deer while you sit comfortably/patiently to shoot him right out the window in the pic..
Just calling them the way I see em... and I can't let this one slide when it's that obvious..
But IF you do actually do shoot a coyote with a crossbow at night, I'd love to see it on video..lol
