The Missouri conservation dept might start letting hunters use crossbows during bow season. I don't know anything about crossbows and would like input on a decent crossbow that is also reasonably priced thanks
I bought my first xbow this year, a 400$ barnet. Came from factory with a string 4!!!! Inches too short, strings popped off the cams trying to cock it. Traded up to a ten point, about 650$ and worth every penny, total quality.
Old man has a ten point and it is the Cadillac of crossbows
Btw, what part of the state you from?
Ive got an excalibur, its a recurve. it's fast.
Positves: No changing pullies or extra strings, easy to string and unstring
Negative: has a larger spread than a compound, so I imagine its not as nice in the bush
Accurate as fuck within 60 yards, hit a quarter sized target consistently. Lots of fun, about $1100 with all the accesories and some bolts
The one I have (4 years old and still awesome):
The one I would buy today:
Get an entry level crossbow until u know for sure you like them.
U can grab them off CL for cheap
