    KALISPELL (AP) — A judge in Kalispell has upheld a state Corrections Department policy that prohibits parolees and probationers from possessing bows used in hunting.

    In June, the department clarified its rules on deadly weapons to include archery equipment. That has the effect of prohibiting parolees and probationers from hunting.

    District Judge Russell Stadler of Kalispell ruled in September that two Flathead County sex offenders on probation could continue to hunt with bows, as long as the equipment was not stored at their homes. Stadler recently reversed his decision.

    I feel safer already. I've always been concerned about possibly being hit in a bow drive by :hsugh:

    9/10 these are convicted felons, in which case i don't fucking care. misdemeanors are excusable, but you know you are doing stupid shit when you get caught for a felony

    I think you might be surprised at some of the non-violent things that can be a felony. I'd bet a really large number of adults have done something in their lives that could have been a felony charge.

    Some of them could be guys who defended themselves with a firearm, but due to the ineptitude of their lawyer, or the idiocy of the DA/jury, they were convicted. We convict people of murder and rape and find out later that they didn't do it.
