what is a good crossbow for your money?
I shoot an Excalibur Equilnox,also have used a Horton for several seasons with good results. Went to Excalibur for simplicity. Compound style bows need to be taken to archery shop to replace string and cables. I can replace string myself in the field. Limbs are abit wider at full draw than compound style, but the recruve style has less moving parts and is abit lighter to carry. Arrow speed is about the same as a compound and I can shoot 18 to 22 inch arrows.
I just got a Barnette Wildcat C5 and I love it. Mine came with a 3 dot sight which took all of 4 shots to zero. Dots are dead on at 20, 40, and 55 yards. You do want a cocking device. I'm a big guy and I can't draw it with just my two hands.
I think all told I gave around 300 for the bow, cocking device, and 6 extra bolts. Now I need to get broadheads before turkey season gets here!
