It was held on by a small piece of meat. Was 1.5 hours from the nearest hospital. It was laying over on the side. I had to pull it up high enough to put it back in place and wrap it. Wasnt one of my better days.

I just wished they had called me back and listened to me... 2 phone calls and 2 letters went unanswered. Probably afraid of being sued.

It was a learning experience for me. Believe me it will only happen once. I hope everyone learns from what happened to me so they dont go through that.

My son laughs at me when I shoot the bow. I audibly ask myself "where is my thumb" and then answer myself " my thumb is down".

The bow itself functions well but does have a loud release. I just may invest in string dampers myself. It is very accurate.

OP if you decide to buy this, be very very careful.

You mentioned telling them about your story and designing a thumb guard? I would have expected huge financial compensations for an injury that bad. The shape of the jackal almost encourages this dangerous grip for anyone that does not have a child's hands.

If you go low price it might not hit the deer
I have had Hortons and they shot well, if the trigger was hard i didn't know any different. I just pull it
I won a Barnett once and it blew apart when my wife was taking a practise shot...makes a guy not think so good about them
I won a PSE awhile back and i like it a lot ,Its fast & accurate

That has pain written all over it. Sorry to hear of the accident. I will admit the new Excalibur vortex has a pretty loud release noise to it, but it is fast with the 200 lb draw. The string dampners sell for 40.00, probably should invest in them and see how they work.

I also have a Vortex shoots very fast, but I have been thinking about the new super fast crossbows out now??? Smaller, lighter, faster......
