Hi guys

In answer to the questions about a dedicated crossbow group/page, at this stage no, just our general Bowhunting Section

It doesn't discriminate between the Traditional, Compound, Recurve or Crossbow factions and I'd prefer not to break them up at this stage

Most of you will at some time experiment with one of the other varieties, and its good to no split our people up into small niche groups and miss the whole aspect of this page which is Bowhunting, regardless the style used

We are all Archers one way or another, have similar experiences and issues, and its good to share with all.

I use a Middleton 370 sends the bolt out between 370 and 409 ft per second. Comfortable up to 25 to 30 yards. At those distances the bolt passes right through. Keep in mind I hunt from a stand and let the deer come to me. They are a bit of a hassle stalking. So far this season only one came in but it was getting on dark and could not pick it up on my scope, so I did not shoot. Good luck with yours and have fun.

Hi fellas
You are all correct, crossbow use is growing (judging on sales) and much of this is due to aging archers, and easy accuracy compared to Compound or Recurve bows which require more technique to achieve their high accuracy
Theyíre also pretty hard hitting
However, letís keep discussion and threads on here not on FB, I kind of get the desire from you guys to have your own section, but at the same time Iíd like all the archery stuff together, as we are all archers arenít we?
Open to more input on it

Just a note tho, as responsible admin for the group I have to remind you not to post Facebook or Tradme links on here.
