Crossbow Scope

This is my first year hunting with a crossbow, the wife gave me a new Barnett Jackal for my birthday..


I'm not impressed at all with the scope and I was looking for some suggestions on a decently priced scope that is suited for crossbow hunting.

It's not good at all in low light conditions and I would like something with some magnification.

I would like to know also too, My daughter has a Recruit and her 3 dot scope that came with it has the same problem,. I hear they have speed adjustable scopes with magnification as her recruit is rated 300fps.

All of the usual brands have crossbow scopes in the line-up. That said, can't go wrong with Hawke scopes.

I put a Nikon on my Bear - scope that came with it was crap. Nikon is great - clear and bright, the range calibration is excellent and I paid less than $150.
