I have many. Necessary not really, but sure is nice to have one if a problem arises.
I have 3....my Excalibur Grizzly, (primary) Carbon Express Heritage,(back up). My third is a Carbon Express Blade....for tight spots and ground blinds. I feel it isn't necessary to have a backup bow as long as I have another weapon(shotgun, compound bow,ect.) just in case. Having 3 crossbows is more of problem for me. I've found each bow to have different needs when hunting. When using one everything is always the same. In that moment of truth when the big one steps out I don't need anything to think about except aiming and slowly pulling the trigger.How many of you have a back up cross bow. Do you think its necessary to have one.
That's as prepared as one can get!!! Identical equipment means no stressing or thinking about what to do...just grab and go! Smart manI have 2 Crossbows, both Excaliburs and both close to the same design. They both handle the same, and are sighted in ready to go. They use the same arrows, nocks and points/broadheads.
The G340 is my primary, and the GRZ2 is the back up. They use the same string, so the spare in my case can be used for either one.
