    O.K. for target shooting and that's it.
    End of discussion if you want to know more look back through previous posts. Any further discussion will only lead to tears.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Hi 6 Point.
    Both Illegal to Hunt with. A very divisive subject on this Forum. Do a search mate as i suspect Admin will stop this thread in its tracks.

    Nothing wrong with your question mate...

    The stance is some would like to hunt with bows but cant as its illegal..

    And some that are happy to have seen it become illegal..

    Personally ive hunted in Africa with a great PH whose known for his bow hunting tours and its something id personally like to do once ive proven myself competent..

    Just better to let sleeping dogs lie I think.

    Those that have knowledge of the subject think it should be legal.

    Those that don't think it is for cavemen and mental people.

    Just about sums it up.
