    Default Crossbow question

    So this will be my first time going out with a crossbow. My reconstructed shoulder prevents me from using a regular bow. Iíve got it zeroed out good at 40 meters. At what range should I pass on a shot? Itís 405 FPS

    If a man is alone in the woods, says something, and a woman does not hear, is he still wrong?

    The main thing I know is they are fast and LOUD. I wouldn’t shoot beyond 40 on SC deer.

    I would think around 50yds. Never hunted with one but have shot a few a fair amount.

    I feel you. Just my only option for early season. I still use my Sako Finnbear for gun season and my shoulder curses me for using it.

    The farther away the animal the less reactions to sound. KE with an arrow/blot decreases substantially at that distance. Aim low and stay under 40 yards.
