Read This Before Crossbow Purchase.

If anybody is considering a crossbow and has questions on the effectiveness of the weapon, take a look at this link. It is very informative.

Sorry, the title is misleading. Also a good read and just as important, if not more important, if you already purchased a crossbow.

God Bless the USA.

Re: Read This Before Crossbow Purchase.

I was disappointed they didnít discuss momentum. They alluded to it under the discussion "AFFECT OF ARROW MASS ON ARROW VELOCITY"
I found it to be great read though, for all archery hunters; not just the crossbow users.

Basically the main point of the article is that crossbows have comparable energy as today's compounds. They won't kill a deer any quicker than a compound. It goes into several calculations and explanations as to why this is true.
