    I’ve had several over the years. The Tenpoint crossbows are hands down the best and most accurate in my opinion. One feature that’s very important is string alignment when cocked. Tenpoint has a crank in the stock that draws the string back evenly, every shot. If you manually pull it back, it can be off slightly and greatly effect your accuracy. There are probably other manufacturers with similar cranks out there. These get pricey, so keep your eye out and buy used, but nothing to old.

    This thread and a need to hunt closer to home made me jump back in the game!! I haven’t used a crossbow to hunt since the law first changed. I had a decked out Tenpoint that I traded off years ago. I figured it’s the right time of year to buy one, so I picked this up off eBay last night. Back in the game baby!!!!
