It's pathetic how far some archers will go to hate crossbows and those who use them. Last season my son and I came upon a guy in a wheelchair being terrorized by such a jerk. The poor guy in the wheelchair had been bowhunting alone along an access road in a local wildlife area. His buddy was off somewhere else. The guy ranting was twice the disabled guys size and half his age. The poor guy in the chair looked terrorized and was obviously at the loudmouth bullies mercy. I came up to them in time to hear the one guy screaming that he was half a mind to beat the crippled guy up and take his crossbow. My son was a couple minutes behind me coming up the road but still out of sight. The guys attitude went over with me like a lead brick! I got the jerks attention, pointed to my crossbow, and asked if he'd like to try and take mine. Amazing how many shades of red a person can turn. He started to challenge me, I'm a disabled Vietnam Vet and was 56 at the time, untill my son rounded the curve into sight with fire in his eyes. My son offered to feed the guy his bow sideways in the reverse order of digestion! Followed by his arrows point first! Lol That made him turn from red to a very sick shade of white. My son is a Certified Executive Bodyguard and looks every bit of the job. We informed the jerk that he'd be reported to the ranger, who happens to be a friend of ours, and that if we ever heard of him threatoning anyone else it likely would be the last time he ever did! With that my son sent him scooting down the road with his tail between his legs. We then escorted the guy in the wheelchair back to his buddies truck and waited till his buddy showed up. I just can't believe how ignorant some people can be. A year later and I still get mad thinking about it.
