    Default 500fps Xbow

    Now what? It breaks the 495fps mark, and an electric motor cocks it for you. Think it will be allowed in Ontario "bow" season? Requiring a PAL?

    Cool.... I think I am getting one of those heat seeking arrows that will be coming out soon, That way I can shoot it from the comfort of my backyard saving me the hassle of entering the bush....
    Oh, maybe something even easier...Uber eats, why leave the comfort of my home

    I think we're a year or 2 away from the remote trigger feature. That's going to be incorporated into the next version of cellular trailcam apps. When you decide which animal you'd like to shoot, just hit 'add to cart' and the xbow will take care of the rest

    Good one and some will fight tooth to nails stating that is still ethical hunting-if they can make the shot, make it.

    That bow will be upwards of $4000.00cdn!

    I'll keep my Scorpyd Deathstslker and buy a new Sako rifle instead! Lol

    Well, it fires a bolt and is over the minimum size requirements, so it will be allowed in the Ontario bow season. It is also a bow and not a gun, so therefore it will not require a PAL.

    Crossbows are already mention in the FA. They were included to require a firearms licence to possess. Those sections were just not enacted. It wouldn’t take much, especially this government, to enact those sections...

    Its a slippery slope in terms of technology advancement and what will be legal in bow season and will this move these higher FPS into gun seasons, etc that has me a bit worried..

    Realistically though, my zone is a one tag area, if my neighbor shoots a buck on his place with one of these what do I care, my season goes on and I do as I wish hunting the next farm over, so it really doesnt affect me..

    Does not look like a slippery slope to me. We allow high powered scopes on rifles. We allow rifled barrels and optics for shotgun and optics for muzzle loader hunts. It is still an arrow being fired down range, it is still a short range tool, yes longer range than a long bow but if you say no to this then an argument could be made to now allow crossbows, compound bows, sights, etc. Those are all technological advancements that make filling your tag easier. It should be more ethical to use a faster bow, less chance to clip it within the same standard bow range.
