Re: Sims vs. Bowjax
The range of a crossbow is the same as a compound. For me my range is 30 yards with an absolute max of 40. For me to shoot 40 the deer must be perfectly positioned and not be on alert at all. I must also have a good rest or be in a comfortable position where I can hold extremly steady. The other variable is I must be sure that the deer won't come any closer. In practice I shoot out to 50 yards and can shoot it quite well enough to kill any deer at that range, but there is too much that can happen in the time that the arrow leaves the bow until it gets to the deer and it usually isn't good.
