Thinking about getting a crossbow for next season

I am not sure,but I think I might like to give a crossbow next year.
I have been doing some looking and kind of narrowed it down to 2:
Horton Summit HD 150
Tacoma by Horton
Also noticed that the Arrow Precision inferno got some good reviews,wondered about that one though!
I really don't want to go over $300.00 for my first one.
Has anyone had any experience with any of these?
Thanks

Re: Thinking about getting a crossbow for next season

For under $300 I would take a good look at the PSE Copperhead. It's a good solid bow. We had one here this summer that we shot over 1200 shots through. It's still going strong.
Give me a call. I can tell you what to watch out for and make some reccomendations for you, based on your style of hunting. I'm here to help, regardless of where you decide to buy. Click the link below.

How is that bow cocked and de-cocked?

The spirit of our day is a soft acceptance of everything—except deep conviction in anything.

With the PSE Copperhead, we just grab the string, throw the safety off, hold tightly on the string and pull the trigger. It's fairly easy to let down that way. Don't do it if you have shoulder/back problems.
I'll make a post soon, with instructions of how we have been unloading our crossbows. I think I've finally come up with a good solution.

Re: Thinking about getting a crossbow for next season

Well,I decided on a Horton Summit HD 150.
Got a good deal on it on sale,not crazy about the site set up.
I will get ahold of you,ArrowHead,in a couple of months about a scope,thinking about a Hawke MAP,so a video on it on Hawke's website,looked good.
