Would you change your mind about taking an archery proficiency test if the AGFC gave out rewards like for instance...an extra deer tag[choice of Buck or Doe]?

Nice but the part you have left out is what is the consequence of failing the TEST ???

Now... I wonder how many would still be voting YES if they thought if they failed they COULD NOT BOW HUNT that season...

i would take the test without extra rewards, except the right to bowhunt. if you don't pass it stay home and practice
Here is personal where "If" I failed I would be a Poacher cause I'm going Hunting regardless ... Just being Honest.. kinda like some new law saying I have to turn in my guns ... Like I'm gonna do that...:smack:

A rednecks gotta draw a line somewhere.. this is where I draw mine...

I would support the test. I see lots fo stuff like deer thats been shot in the face and I think there are ALOT of deer getting wounded by people that just dont take the time to practice. I would also support a gun test too.

Why limit the test to bow hunters? For sure, there are bow hunters out there that aren't proficient enough to be hunting, but the same goes for firearms hunters. I venture to say that the number of deer wounded by poor archery shots pales in comparison to the number of deer wounded by poor firearms shots. So, if one wants to make a difference in the number of wounded deer, we need to be looking at firearms hunters instead of bow hunters. That isn't to say that I'm in favor of a test. I voted no.

That didn't take long.
