Just wondering how many have made the choice to shoot a crossbow instead of a compound by virtue of there own choice and not because you had too? If so do you still get the same thrill of the kill and enjoyment you got when you hunted with a vertical compound bow?
I am thinking about making the switch but am just wondering if I will still feel the same thrill I do when I can draw and take an animal at close range with my compound. One of the reasons I am thinking of switching is the type of terrain I have at my property. I don't have a lot of large trees that I would consider stable enough to support a treestand, so a lot of my hunting is done on the ground and I think the crossbow would work to my advantage in this situation. Also my son who is 10yrs. old can now legally hunt with one in the state our property is in. My funds right now won't allow me to keep my bow and also purchase the crossbow so I would need to sell my compound in order to finance the purchase. I have mixed feelings right now about giving up my compound mainly because it is all I have used for over 30yrs.
Just looking for some feedback.
