Default Cross Bows

Anyone have any insight to these? In MI everyone can use them at least for a few years. Just wondering if its worth it to get one or use a "REAL" bow, and if so which one?

Thanks in Advance.

Crossbows are also legal for all here in Va as well. I tore my rotator cup 8 years ago and had to use one for a couple of years. i don't think they are all everyone makes them out to be. They are big and bulky in the stand. They really are no more accurate than your compound bow. Much louder than a compound. The biggest advantage is being cocked and loaded. Less chance of getting busted drawing back. But if you really want a good crossbow I would recoment 10 Point brand.

well ill tell ya what though my excalibur wolverine is no more louder than my friends pse deer hunter compound bow . i would love to learn compound or recurve bow but my practice due to work is very limited hence why i like my big old wooden stocked excalibur which is not light at all but im comfortable shooting it.

Default Crossbows

Crossbows are good for those who have to use them. I have had one for about 10 years and love it. Mine has a 4X scope on top so it shoots with great accuracy out to 45-50 yards. I tend to keep my shots shorter because they are loud and a deer can jump the bolt. Also as mentioned above they are heavy to carry and a little awkward until you get used to them. Once in your stand it is much like a short range rifle as far as there being no drawback motion to spook a deer. Shoulder it like a rifle and squeeze the trigger. Mine has Accu-Draw. A cranking system to cock it with. No way can I pull it back. Again as mentioned above, 10 Point is the way to go if you are serious about a crossbow. Cost a little more but quality and customer service are tops.
