A different kind of weapon
The first 50 years of the New Jersey government-sanctioned hunting season only allowed bows and arrows as weapons, a surprising choice considering the variety of modern weaponry available now. You might have been surprised to hear that Pedals was specifically dealt a deadly blow by a crossbow.
We don’t know if Pedals’ use of a crossbow meant that his passing was quick and painless, but we hope it was. The animal had already suffered enough.
