New York just allowed crossbows for hunting last year. This year they are now allowed almost all the time.
I have 5 acres myself to hunt as well as some other areas that just too close for any kind of firearm. I'm looking to see if anyone has any input on a good crossbow? Before you say use a regular bow.... You can't hunt with a bow during firearms season, but you can use a crossbow. So let me get that out of the way.
I see all kinds of packages and have looked at recommendations. I'm kinda leaning towards an Excalibur Axiom SMF. It's a total kit, only 6 lbs. Fits the requirements of NY as far as draw weight and dimensions.
I'm sure crosssbows can get expensive, just like compounds.
So who shoots them and what are any tips and tricks?
