Re: Will you ever give up your crossbow?
Never used it to hunt with but yesterday was the first time I ever shot it and it was a blast.
I always wanted to archery hunt but never felt I had the time or accuracy to feel confident, and that was something I put on my bucket list for when I retired.
Friends of mine talked me into trying with the crossbow a , so I brought a medium grade that if I didn't like could play out back with the grand kids.
Used a shooting stick, after 15 shots and some adjustments was holding a 1" group at 15 yards, moved back to 25, then 40. I wont hunt with it till Mid October at the earliest but its fun to shoot.
At this point even if I just use it as a toy it was well worth the money. I can definitely see moving up a couple classes in crossbows soon if I like it for hunting.
My ability to remember lyrics from songs of the 60's far exceed my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen
