The Horton Story

Anyone who has ever shot a crossbow knows the name Horton. Fortunately, I'm blessed to call the inventor of the modern day crossbow (Bernard Horton) my friend. We correspond frequently sharing our hunting adventures with one another, and then lying to each other about what great hunters we are. Bernard now lives in Africa and his entire life really is a safari. Recently he sent me a package that included three books he has written, inscribed with personal messages, and a signed photo. Anyone that's interested in crossbows and looking for a good read while self isolating, I highly recommend the Horton Story. It's like the Fred Bear story for crossbows.
