    There's a big difference folks from being arrested for a felony charge and being convicted of a felony.

    BOHNTR,

    I think this dead horse has been kicked to dust.

    Everybody has their sob story. Although the "jealous dirty cop framed me and I was unjustly convicted of a felony" story is a good one (although apparently the jury didn't buy it), the fact remains: The people of Utah decided they didn't want felons bow hunting there. They can change that law through their representatives, if they so choose.

    I agree, this topic needs to go away.

    Maybe I'm confused but doesn't federal law forbid convicted felons from possessing any type of weapon, including archery equipment?

    I would guess primarily this difference is due to size of wallet

    It's like a DUI, if you don't blow, have $5k for a lawyer, you don't get convicted of a DUI. Case Closed.

    Imagine if felons couldn't own golf clubs, baseball bat, steak knives, haha.


    I remember some quote I once read... "Man kills wife with steak knife, can no longer own rifle, can still own steak knife" go figure, I guess this is what happens when politicians make laws.

    That's called punishing the object instead of punishing the criminal for the crime.....which is often the case.
