Going to use the xbow this year

After dealing with elbow tendonitis the past couple of years, I can hardly draw my bow back this year. I was out shooting my son's xbow last night. Xbow will be with me in the stand this year. Actually enjoy shooting it. I may just sell my Mathews and buy my own xbow.

Awesome! Glad to see you staying in the game. If you like Mathews, Mission makes a mighty fine crossbow. I would opt for the MXB360.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Going to use the xbow this year

As long as you do not mind being snubbed by vertical guys they are great.
I gave my compound to cousin my back and shoulder injuries
make it impossible to shot vertical.
Welcome to the club...Good Luck.

Just get out and enjoy the outdoors.
Leave the rest behind it will be there waiting when you return.

Good for you, whatever it takes to keep you in the game. Anyone who gives you grief, just remind them that you bought the same license they did.

Re: Going to use the xbow this year

I am glad you can still find enjoyment in shooting/ hunting without pain. Great! You have more guts than me, I am scared of all that stored energy. Of coarse you can say it isn't nearly the stored energy in a bullet. Lol. My old muscles and bones are starting to squeak a bit also. Good luck!

Good luck to you. I switched a couple years ago.
I still try the vertical just not as good
anymore with it. Darn elbow.

Re: Going to use the xbow this year

Dpms, I bought my son a wicked ridge invader a few years ago to get him into archery. It seems to be a pretty good little xbow. I let a buddy of mine borrow it last year prior to his shoulder surgery. If I end up going this route permanently, I will def look at a Ten point. They seem to be very good.

Re: Going to use the xbow this year

I made the move last year. After several back surgeries, it was the only way to go. I got a Wicked Ridge Invader and love it. I would suggest a Primos shooting stick (or similar) to stabilize the xbow if you're going to be stalking deer. Best of luck!

Yes, TenPoint is top notch.
