Well, I'm having shoulder issues (recurring impingement syndrome and a bone spur in my bow arm shoulder) and I'm thinking my days of hunting with a vertical bow may soon be drawing to a close. I am starting the process of investigating buying a crossbow. One concern I have is that I hunt exclusively from a climbing tree stand (a Summit Viper to be more specific) and have some concerns about the maneuverability of a crossbow in my tree stand. I'm looking at a compact limb design like a Ten Point. Any thoughts, experiences, helpful hints, etc. you can share would be greatly appreciated.
