As a vertical bow to crossbow convert, I'll say without a doubt a crossbow is a more efficient weapon than a vertical bow in the hands of an experienced shooter. If there's a problem, I'd say it lies with folks not understanding the effective range of a crossbow, and folks pushing the envelope on shot distances. However, that problem lies with the shooter not the weapon. Education is key. A while back the PA Game News contained an interesting article regarding a deer's reaction time, shot distance and arrow/bolt speed and had a chart indicting the effective range of the weapon, based on the arrow/bolt speed.
