Default The Crossbow and Bow Hunting Thread....

Well I decided to get a crossbow from these guys:

http://www.thecrossbowstore.com/default.asp

They're extremely affordable to say the least. But anyhow I thought I'd start a new thread pertaining to both crossbows as well as other bow hunting methods such as recurve bows, long bows and of course compound bows. So lets see some photos and hear about some mods to these hunting tools. Here's a little program that you can download to help fine tune your bow/crossbow:

^ It's the arrow drop compensator program and it's awesome.

Default Re: The Crossbow and Bow Hunting Thread....

Right now I own 2 bows. I have a Bear Charge that I will be giving to my cousin this year because I just picked up a nice used Bear Anarchy. I hunt in Wisconsin where crossbows are now legal to use, but I'm good enough with my compound bows that I don't see the need to go crossbow yet. I've been hunting with rifles for 18 years, but this will only be my 4th year bow hunting. I got a nice 6 pointer in my first year bowhunting, nothing my second year, but I got two does last year and I passed on several nice buck while looking for something bigger. Here's a picture of one of my does and my new bow.

Nice man real nice. In my state a crossbow use to be only for handicapped hunters which I am now. Now you can't hunt with one without being handicapped which is cool.

Nice bow man. I bet that branch is getting cussed on a regular basis, L.O.L.

The reason I chose a crossbow is because they have alot more power and thanks to the website I posted earlier, they're much cheaper than alot of your compound bows are in some cases. I can't belive Horton Archery went out of business last year (July, 2013). Ghostblind is coming out with another blind that's larger than their predator version. It's for water fowl hunting.
