RECOMMENDATION

WELL I JUST RECEIVED A CALL TODAY THAT MY BUDDY STEVE TORE HIS RIGHT ROTATOR CUFF. STEVE HAS BEEN AN AVID BOWHUNTER FOR 20+ YEARS. WITH THAT BEING SAID, I THOUGHT MAYBE I WOULD BROWSE AROUND AND TRY TO FIND HIM A CROSSBOW FOR 2ND SEASON, HE LOVES THE CHALLENGE OF BOWHUNTING ADULT DOES AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN CHASED AND SHOT AT DURING GUN SEASON.
CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A GOOD CROSSBOW FOR UNDER $500.

THANKS

THIS HOW I WACK'UM, PACK'UM AND STACK'UM.

Re: RECOMMENDATION

In that $$ range I would not hesitate to recommend the Parker Enforcer at the high end and the Parker BushWacker for a bit less. You can get both as packages for less than $500 and they both have killed quite a few deer for HPA members this year.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: RECOMMENDATION

The Excalibur Axiom or the Parker Enforcer 160 would seem to be the best choice. They both have a great warranty and customer service is second to none.

Parker enforcer 160 or either one of the wicked ridge crossbows are great also.

Re: RECOMMENDATION

WELL MY BUDDY TOLD ME LAST NIGHT THAT HE STILL DID NOT PURCHASE A CROSSBOW. HE PLANS ON PURCHASING IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS. ARE THE CROSSBOWS LISTED STILL GOOD CHOICES OR ARE THERE BETTER MODELS THIS YEAR IN THAT $500 PRICE RANGE?

Re: RECOMMENDATION

I would go with the Parkers! I have owned Excal,Horton,10 point,Parker x-bows.... The best bang for the $$$

PARKER! At your price point Enforcer or Bushwacker will put meat on the ground and a smile on his face!

Re: RECOMMENDATION

Enforcer +1...light, easy to cock, inexpensive for a Parker and deadly accurate.
