First Crossbow

Picked up my first crossbow. An Excaliber Equinox Vari-Zone package. Going to go sight it in today and possibly use it for spring turkey instead of the Winchester. Can't wait.

Great choice, keep the fingers below the string, always think safety first.

Re: First Crossbow

Excellent choice. I have a Excal Vortex and there is alot to like about it.

I have hunted with a crossbow exclusively for spring turkey now for several seasons. It is quite the accomplishment with any archery tackle. Make the comittment to it and best of luck.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: First Crossbow

Just got back. Sighting scope in and getting all the yardage marks on was relatively easy. Shot 2" groups at 50 Yards. Amazing.
