Yeah, crossbow hunters got screwed. In a nutshell, the KDFWR put it through for full expansion of crossbows during the entire archery season several years ago. UBK and some other "sportsmen" started griping about it and eventually got some of our state legislators involved in the mess. Those butt-plugs were getting ready to introduce a bill to override the KDFWR on the crossbows and make it where they could never expand them throughout the archery season. So as a way of keeping the peace and keeping the state legislators out of it, the KDFWR came up with a "compromise" in the form of the present season structure that we currently have.
Vertical bows have got the entire month of the early season to themselves, and then they've got the pre-rut to themselves, not to mention the 20 days of the late season.
The kicker in everything is that the KDFWR paid some survey agency to do a survey of hunters in the state at the time. The vast majority of the hunters in the state were in favor of full expansion of crossbows throughout the entire archery season. Knowing this though didn't seem to affect the legislators.
