Crossbow upgrade

Decided to bite the bullet and upgrade my crossbow. I had won a Parker Buckbuster 150 five years ago at our QDMA banquet. The bow worked great for me. Took quite a few deer including 2 very nice buck with it. I decided it was time to upgrade from the "basic" bow and decided on another Parker. I've loved Parker's since I visited their facility in Mint Springs, VA back in 1999-2000. I opted for the Gale Force with the illuminated reticle scope. WOW!!! Not only is the bow sweet shooting, but I really like the scope!! Can't wait for October!!

Re: Crossbow upgrade

I had the Parker Cyclone which is similar to the Gale Force for quite a few years. Killed some deer with it and never had a issue. Sold it to a member here and I hope that it continues to lay em down.

Congrats and good luck this fall!

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Crossbow upgrade

I was on the fence between the Parker Tornado and Ten Point Stealth. Liked them both but ended up with the stealth solely due to my bicep tear and their accudraw system. Good luck with yours.

Re: Crossbow upgrade

The Stealth SS is an amazing bow. I just love the way it handles. Very quiet, narrow and short.
