    I am thinking of getting a cross bow for hunting and know absolutely nothing about them. Anyone care to steer me in the right direction?

    WWW...What brand, What poundage, Where best to buy?

    Any info will be appreciated.

    Last weekend I had the chance to shoot my sons new X-bow made by Mission. 360fps and really shot well. I believe its a division of Mathews..Light weight and fast.

    I have a tenpoint crossbow. I think to date I've taken ten or more deer with it,and it has yet to let me down. I have shot others,but Iam glad I bought what I did.Good luck in your quest..Ray

    I brought a Horton cam crossbow because it was fast and light. If I get one in the future it will be a simple crossbow without the cams and cables, they are easy to work on. Ask your question on the above site's forum.

    Thanks for the replies. I bought a Horton. Now I will probably be like blkcloud and not harvest anything. ; )
    Take care.
