Crossbow help??

6 posts in this topic

I am looking at getting a crossbow in the near future. Can anyone offer any suggestions on what brand is reliable?

I know not alot of people use them but any info would be great. I need to have it set-up for mostly one armed operation

I guide hunters for a handicapped hunt every year and many use a Ten Point for a crossbow.They are very nice but a little on the spendy side.

Ten Point would probably be the way to go. I know for sure that some of those have powered cockers. I use a barnett with the cocking aid. But you definately need two hands to cock it with that.

I got one for my dad and I also got the reel to crank the string in it works great you can do it all with one hand smirk.gif. I would go with the TEN POINT as well. with every thing and case I think I paid close to a grand but to see him hunt you can not price that good luck on your choice cool.gif

Lund 95, Ten Point and Horton are a couple of very good bows. Depending on how much you want to spend they can range from 350.00 to 1000.00. You may also want to take a look at the new one by Bowtech called the Stryker. They say it will shoot 400 fps and they should be out by the first of the year.

Had a buddy who just recently purchased an Excaliber. He purchased the top model rated at 350 fps. The bow was a little too long for the buddy so he purchased the hand cranking cocker. The bow is extremely fast and deadly accurate. The crossbow is a traditional crossbow, not a compound.

Before buying, we talked to Schaefer Archery in Burnsville and this is the bow they recommended. The buddy spent about $1100 for the complete setup and hunting license.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
