For the price of one, I would think you could get a decent used crossbow.

Not allowed in some states without a doctor's slip. Might want to check your hunting regs.

^ ^ ^ you can . for a little over a hundred more there are 2 wicked ridge in the want ads here used.
for same $ one can get a not-so-fancy one like i have and take the horrid optic off and
replace it with a decent used and practice and go hunt.


jmo, i'll leave my regular bows in the factory configuration

crossbows will be legal in 2016 here in mo.


ive looked at a lot of used cbows and for the same price i can get a old or newer cbow with bad reviews.in my rural area of course. all the older recurve cbows seem to have probs with the limbs cracking and the newer cheaper compound crossbows have probs with the rails warping.


ok for 3 or 400 buks i can get a decent cbow, used, based on my research. i will need more bolts, it will be much heavier,etc.


or for 200 buks i can get a draw loc and use one of my old proven bows and the arrows i have. thats what im looking at. my right shoulder hurts bad after practiceing with my compound bow.ive pounded too many pole barn nails in with a 2lb hammer.


i just want to be able to stick a deer again.

No offense, but there's no way I'd spend $170 or more on some gadget when I could buy a brand new Barnett Jackal crossbow with bolts, quiver, and scope for $255 with free shipping. http://www.amazon.com/Barnett-Jackal.../dp/B004IJ1Q1Q

I think I might try to pickup an Inferno Fury. It's a recurve. And only 175 lbs, but that might be safer than some of the faster compound models. And it weighs less than 5 pounds with arrows, quiver, and sight installed. All for about $160 brand new.
This guy wrote a great review on it. http://www.crossbowproductions.com/h...iced-crossbow/

not really safer. it'll still booger up
your hand if your fingers wander
where they're not supposed to.


be careful- good luck

My nephew has hunted with this device for about 5 years. There is nothing wrong with the quality or design. I recommend it to anyone who wants the advantages of a crossbow but already owns a good compound bow.

I put a lock a draw on my bow. You will need a whisker biscuit, retune, and the weight to the side changes bow torque. I have it working but it took a lot of persistence to become as consistent with it as i was before conversion. Also it is more comeberson to carry with the rod attached.
