ten point crossbow [Hey L.R. here's a archery post sorta}
« on: September 09, 2009, 06:27:45 pm »
Im not a bow shooter and I don't know if they are considered sporting for hunting but the other day my neighbor was showing me his new Ten point crossbow with the crank in the stock to load and a factory scope and bipod is was easy to shoot. I don't think anyone who shot it that day missed the 3 inch target at 30 yards.Maybe they all shoot good but this one was my first to ever shoot. and I was impressed

Thanks kellymc, I have not shot one yet either but I would like to. I still like the challenge of my bow so I'm not buying one, yet.

I didn't see challanging like a reg. bow either but If I was going to shoot hogs from a stand I would like to have the crossbow instead of the rifle

Sixty yards? That is impressive to me.

I love crossbows. The are easy, accurate, dependable and most important to me, they are not so shooter specific. You don't have to build one around just one hunter or shooter. They are very interchangeable between a father/son hunting team or between husband and wife for example. The crossbow recieves alot of critisism from the masses of compound bow hunters. Alot of people argue that there is not as much prestige hunting with a crossbow versus hunting with the widly accepted compound bow, but the same argument can be made with the recurve and/or the long bow. There is way more prestige while hunting with one of these bows versus a compound bow any day. The way I look at it is that technology took an old idea and improved the recurve with the compound bow and then again technology took an old idea and improved upon it for the hunter/shooters benifit with the new age hunting crossbows. Don't be so pessimistic until you try one. They are outstanding!
