That is the very point that the wildlife board is making in creating the “technology committee” they directed at the last meeting. Look at all technology and see what has crossed whatever arbitrary threshold will be set as “fair chase.” That said, it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that the first target is variable higher powered scopes on muzzleloaders. They only started to be allowed 5 years ago. And it was VERY controversial even when it finally passed to allow them. It’s not like there is decades of tradition being attacked here.It’s all going to get attacked as this can of worms gets opened.
If you want it like when the native Americans were the ones chasing the deer, you won’t have increased opportunity. There were not many deer on the landscape back then. Let’s not make the argument that we should go back to those times.If we want to increase opportunity and make it fair on the deer we should only hunt with hand made bows and arrows like the native Americans did.
