    Well I did it... After reading a bunch of forums and asking questions on here I ordered the R10 today! I cannot wait for it to come in next week. With that said this will be my first crossbow, so im excited and nervous since I have never shot one before (been shooting a compound for many years)...

    There are more choices in crossbow arrows today than there ever has been. When I first started hunting with a horizontal bow over 20 years ago, we had one choice in an arrow which was aluminum. Depending on what manufacturer your bow was, you could either shoot a flat crossbow nock or had to...

    The Bohning Blazer vane has earned a reputation of being a bulletproof vane that provides excellent broadhead steering for arrows shot from today’s modern compound bows. But with crossbow hunting on the rise, is the Blazer vane a suitable contender for crossbow arrows? The answer is an...
