Parker Enforcer on the way!!!

Well the family was wondering who I was talking to for so long out on the deck last night, but they were VERY happy to find out when I came in that a second Parker crossbow is joining the family aresnal this week.

Had a great discussion with arrowhead last night on all sorts of topics about hunting, at the end of which was a box being filled with all sorts of goodies:

Parker Enforcer 160 with the Hawke multi-rectical optic,
18 victory bolts,and the string surppressor set for our one year old Tornado which we are nuts about and looking to make even a little better(with the surpressors and victory shafts)

Going to get some more broadheads and lit nocks this summer as we switch over to hunting practice mode so we can find those pass thrus a little easier than last year buried in the leaf clutter and maybe even follow that shot with the naked eye.

Last year I found myself with more willing/practiced hunters than crossbows on a couple Fall Saturdays, although a good problem to have I vowed not to be in that situation this year, especially with a rookie hunter in my daughter, so a top priority was to find another treestand friendly crossbow that had great accuracy, lighter weight, and easier cocking than the Tornado. The plan now is I hope my wife and 12 year old daughter could have a crossbow in one stand , while the son and I could have one in another (or vice versa), and this scaled down Tonrado version fit the bill almost as if Parker knew what my family needed this year.

In addition to the bow season prep, I got a nice Gamo Big Cat 1200 air rifle yesterday from Cabela's ,I need to sight in yet, and I hope it gets thousands of rounds thru it this summer from my youngest child (7) to me...ALL OF US can improve our rifle skills with this gun. Then for the daughter it will be onto the Rem .22 bolt in summer, then onto the H&R single shot .243 by rifle season. Joey will have to settle for graduation to the Henry .22 mini bolt in 2010 and paper and aluminum targets, at least one more year for him as spectator in the stand.

Good times ahead...along with a report on the Enforcer and how it compares to the Tornado. Looking forward to a summer of shooting, and what I hope is a Fall full of gripping and grinning for the troops.

i would of went with another Tornado, but after arrowheads reports, and the fact that I need to still get an in-line ML and another deer rifle this year I need to save a little where I can.

GO TEAM!!! 2010 a year of the backstraps and boneheads (meaning bucks not my family ) !


I hope to report in on all the practice rounds and hunting excursions, like always, the uncontrolable world around us may want 2010 to be another bad year in American's lives, but I want it to be another good one in ours. Hunting means more than it ever has to the average joe Amercian family, so see ya out there and please get your kids outdoors.

Re: Parker Enforcer on the way!!!

Rb, I'm guessing you like the parkers, I don't know anything about them and I'm thinking about buying another CB. I had a 10 point years ago, can't remember the exact model now, but it was before talk of them becoming legal in Pa. A friend of mine who had shot it, kept badgering me about selling it to him so he could use it out of state and I did. I might have to give these parkers a shot. Goodluck with the new CB and kids.

Re: Parker Enforcer on the way!!!

Thanks!

To be fair the only other crossbow I ever shot or handled was a Excaliber , and although I would of liked it for myself, it felt too big for my kids and seemed too wide for two in a ladder stand or a pop-up blind so the Parker jumped out and I never looked back.

Accuracy, speed, and two deer dropping in 20 yards last year with well placed shots, one from a nervous 12 year old and one from a calm 41 year old , I have no reason not to like them or tinker around with others, nothing but accuracy on the range, and short bloodtrails in the field.

I HIGHLY recommend talking to arrowhead on any brand (be sure to set aside a good hour though cause the education is free .. and not just because he supports this site , but becasue he test shoots all that he carries, finds the right combos and I think has earned his "doctorate" in the science of crossbows from that time he puts in. It is my understanding that Parker prices will be the same everywhere...so why not buy from a guy on HPA everyday and has that much knowledge, that is alot of value-added for nothing.
