    In case it matters, P&Y doesn't recognize crossbow kills.

    It may be legal in some places but it seems comparable to using a single shot rifle in Muzzle loader season to me....

    I wonder how long until a "double asterisk" shows up like the single one did for compound letoff

    No telling. I don't think lumenoks have been allowed yet either. I'd care a little more if I actually entered deer. When I first started shooting 3D tournaments there was still a lot of mouthing going on by the traditional guys.

    I had a bronc break my elbow 3 years ago, had surgery ended up with a screw in it. Dr. advised me not to shoot my bow for a year. I purchased a Parker Enforcer. It was the lightest weight crossbow at the time & it is awesome. I've killed several deer with it out to 50 yards. Clean pass through on everyone so far. I would look at the Parker line. Stay away from the horton's, they are good crossbows but went bankrupt. Got a buddy that can't find parts for his right now.
    Good Luck

    I have a Barnett Ghost 350. I haven't killed an elk with it yet but I hope to soon. Very fast and accurate. I can hit a 2 inch bull at 60 yards consistently. .not sure of the exact weight but it's way lighter than my rifle. I carry my bipod along also - works great to steady it. I like it.

    The only advantage a crossbow has over a compound is that with the use of shooting sticks or a rest, you can achieve a greater maximum range with less practice. My stepmother got a crossbow as a retirement present from her co-workers, and the first time I shot it, freehand at 20 yards, I broke the first bolt's nock with the second bolt. Not much of a learning curve, nor much skill required.

    I have an Excaliber exomax, it has regular recurve limbs so no issues with getting it back and running in the mountains if a string breaks, or get sliced with a broad head, best of all it is extremely accurate, they also come with a great warranty and excellent customer service.
