I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but it's what I now shoot. I shoot compound bow for 35 years & stick bow before that; work, play & genitics have my shoulers worn out period. Even with 80% let off the motion of raising my bow & drawing became to painfull, not so much the pain but the interuption of concentration that would occur as I raised my bow to draw.
Now here I sit with a nice Ten Point pro-elite cross bow 185 lb draw @ 350 fps, it's like shooting a rifle
that's why I shot a bow in the first place. I will say that I do like the lighted scope, I might go back to head shoots ?
Any body else shoot a cross bow ?
Crossbows have become a "hot topic" here in Illinois in the last few years since some rule changes were made that allow any hunter 62 or over to legally use one. I have several friends who have switched and just spoke with another who plans to make the move next season.
I have not shot a crossbow in more than 10 years and then, my experience was very limited. I know they have improved greatly in that time period but have no first hand experience.
I still have my "old technology" PSE Fire Flight compound bow but have not taken that to the woods in quite a while. I really used to enjoy shooting it and tried to put a couple of arrows down range each afternoon, weather permitting. Like so many others it seems, an injury prevented me from shooting it for a time and I just never picked it back up after that.
I feel that anything that will keep us in the woods hunting, crossbows included, are very good things.
Best of luck with yours.
