My buck taken with a 15th Century pattern Medieval crossbow I had built by a couple in Texas. I had a ball playing with this ancient bow for months before bow season came in. Built some 608 grain arrows and cut the arrow length so the tip of the 220 grain Grizzly broadhead was used for 25 yard (maximum) aiming. The buck came by me at 25 yards. As he stepped into my shooting lane I made a grunting sound. I was already squeezing the tickler (trigger) with the tip of the broadhead lined lined up perfectly on his shoulder. The bow fired and that slow pokey heavy arrow was on the way. He stood there and waited for it to hit exactly where I was aiming. It knocked him down!! He got up and went 40 yards before going down for good. Needless to say, it was the most rewarding and challenging crossbow kill I will ever experience.
