Re: Which X-bow?
Really depends on what you want to spend. The Wicked Ridge line has been dependable and not that much money. Step up from there to the new Horton Ultralight, TenPoint Titan. From there the Mission crossbows are great bows and reliable. TenPoint Shadow and Stealth. For recurve bows the Excalibur Micro and Matrix are exceptional. Wider than the others and louder, but super easy to maintain.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
