Yes, we all know that fiberglass arrows with yellow feathers are far more deadly than green ones with orange feathers.
Can you imagine if it had been a carbon arrow with a broadhead? I can only imagine how they'd carry on about a sinister loner attaching razor blades to the arrow in order to maximize the carnage. Then they'd no doubt get hold of the bow and start going into a discussion of how carefully-tuned pulleys are used to magnify the force far beyond that of a "normal" bow, or how he'd attached silencers to the string.
The press can spin anything in a bad way, and people who are willing to throw black rifles under the bus haven't thought about how the press would spin a shooting with a scoped bolt-action. In the hands of a zealot with a word processor, that Model 70 becomes a high power sniper rifle using "dum-dum" exploding/expanding bullets that can kill at several hundred yards and which are way more powerful than what's needed to kill a deer.
It's the same thing with the law and the government. They always mistakenly categorize thing as something they actually are not. They categorize smokeless powders as an explosive when it's actually a flamable propellent. They categorize any carbonated malt beverage that is above 6.0% alcohol as an Ale regardless of the brewing method. Teflon coated bullets as armor piercing, etc. How can the government or the law decide what is best for the people when they contantly mistakenly and wrongly categorize certain products?
Also for as much time and coverage as the media has these days, why can't they ever report anything right? They always leave people with a severely false impression of how things really are. Now the general public has the impression that only the yellow ones are dangerous Yeah, every small airplane is a Cessna too
I have a friend who loves to use deer feeders that will hold like 5- 40 pound bags of feed or corn, and wants help hauling them deep into the woods where he has amazingly located the perfect spot for this 30 pound battery operated tripod that will only be there for a couple of weeks each year. My suggestion to him was to build some kind of light weight gravity feeder that could be strapped to a tree or a fence post if permenant, and this is what we came up with. I am...
