Crossbow Season Won’t Change In 2019 A FIRESTORM of public comment after the state Natural Resources Board announced it was looking at options to reduce crossbow harvest in January led to a reversal in February, with board chair Dr. Frederick Prehn instead asking the DNR to begin a lengthy data-gathering and stakeholder engagement process and report back by August. Prehn said there would be no changes in 2019. If any major changes are proposed, other stakeholders including the Conservation Congress could weigh in on the matter.

There are tackle boxes full of lures and terminal tackle, from soft plastics to jigs to hard baits of various types, and of course plenty of weights.

I wish I could say these were well organized, but I generally try not to lie to people — unless it’s to exaggerate (slightly) about…
