    Recently I had a chance to review the TenPoint Shadow Ultra-Lite crossbow which is a new for 2014. To say I was excited to review this particular crossbow would be an understatement. I’ve reviewed plenty of crossbows in the past and history tells me that TenPoint makes one of the finest...

    When it comes down to it, crossbows are pretty easy to shoot. Take anybody off the street who has never shot a crossbow before and before too long, they will be hitting the target with some degree of accuracy. Now I know to master any skill, there is enormous amount of time that must go into it...

    After years of being the administrator of the Crossbow Nation website, I see a trend at the same time of year right before hunting season. This trend is a reoccurrence in threads being started by members complaining about their broadheads not flying or not grouping well when shot from their...

    Recurve crossbow technology has been around since the dawn of time. Well, pretty much anyways. It has been documented to be known to exist from somewhere around 6,000 BC. So it’s a pretty safe assumption that it is the oldest technology when it comes to the limb configuration of a crossbow. The...

    I thought that explaining what the essential components of a crossbow are and how they all work together to make a crossbow function would a good starting point for the “newbie” or beginning x-bow hunter. Without the knowledge of what each component is, you most likely would have a hard time...

    Crossbows have been around forever. Well almost forever. It has been documented that the earliest known crossbow was from around 6000 B.C. One thing that has stayed consistent with most every crossbow built from that point up until now is that the bolt or arrow was held in place, and launched...

    Many hunters will be purchasing crossbows this year. Some will purchase one because it will be the only way for them to stay active in the woods. Others will purchase one just to test the waters, not knowing if a crossbow is the route they really want to go or not. In both cases, first time...

    Practicing with your crossbow is something that every hunter should be doing. But when speaking with many hunters from around the country, I’ve found that many of them do not practice at all. They shoot their crossbows, but they aren’t practicing with their bows. What I mean by not practicing is...

    Go into any sporting goods store in any state that allows the use of crossbows for hunting and you’ll most likely find multiple choices when it comes to crossbow packages for purchase.

    One question I see from time to time that pops up on the Crossbow Nation forum is; What are you looking for in the perfect crossbow? This question is often replied to by many of the members in a variety of ways. One thing that seems to be consistent with most of the answers is that hunters are...

    Talk to any bowhunter that has never hunted with a crossbow, or even held one for that matter and you are bound to hear how easy they are to hunt with. The truth is, to become proficient enough to hunt with a crossbow is easier compared to a vertical bow. I want to emphasize that I am talking...

    In the recent years, we have seen a trend in crossbow designs to lean towards the tactical look that many black rifles have. I believe that Horton Manufacturer started this trend of with the reverse limbed bow the Recon. Later we saw Parker, PSE, Kodabow, and TenPoint follow suit offering...
