What Are The Best Crossbows For Hunting
TenPoint Nitro XRT Crossbow Package
The TenPoint Nitro XRT Crossbow Package is high end. It boasts a 470 FPS velocity while its ACU draw PRO cocking system all but negates the 225 pounds of force necessary to cock this machine. Its advanced T5 trigger is state-of-the-art and negates almost all trigger pull-based inaccuracies.
One of the most common reasons for a crossbow to fire inaccurately is because the arrow and the string are misaligned. Even slight misalignments as the arrow is fired can create large trajectory errors downrange. The TenPoint Nitro XRT Crossbow’s custom Alpha-Nock technology gets rid of that issue, as it keeps the string and the nock snugly aligned right up until the arrow is released. This new Alpha-Nock system increases string-to-knock engagement by 28%, leading to far fewer off-center shots.
•The is an all-inclusive system, so no pricey accessories are necessary. Included in this package are: an EVO-X Marksman Scope with dovetail mount, six EVO-X Center Punch Premium Carbon arrows, a three-arrow quiver with left-or-right-handed side-mount bracket, a STAG hard case, and a neoprene carry sling. Truly, this is everything you need.
PSE Fang HD Pro Crossbow Package
The PSE Fang HD Pro Crossbow is ideal for a new crossbow enthusiast. That does not mean this is an underpowered “starter bow,” though, so do not be confused. This is a powerful weapon. It boasts a speed of 405 FPS, meaning this bow is formidable enough to successfully hunt any type of animal.
The crossbow does have a 205 lb. draw weight, meaning that this is not going to be a quick or quiet bow to reload, at least at first. However, with practice, a competent hunter can reload a 205 lb. draw in a manner of seconds. This kit also comes with a DV-425 1.5-5x32mm variable zoom scope, a fully adjustable butt stock, a foot stirrup, a five-arrow quiver, and limb dampeners and string suppressors to cut down on noise and vibration.
If you are in the market for a beginner crossbow that still has the power to get the job done, consider the PSE Fang HD Pro Crossbow. It is not flashy but it is a highly efficient, well manufactured weapon.
BearX Constrictor Hunt Crossbow
This is another all-inclusive kit that is perfect for a new hunter or an experienced hunter looking to upgrade. The BearX Constrictor Ready-to-Hunt Crossbow Package is tailor-made for hunting in deep woods and tight spaces. It measures 10 in. axle to axle when cocked and 14 in. uncocked, so this is a very compact weapon that will go anywhere with you.
With a speed of 410 FPS, the BearX Constrictor is powerful enough to take down any size game animal. Weighing in at only 7.8 lbs., this weapon will not weigh down your hunt. With one of the sleekest designs on the market, the BearX Constrictor would not look out of place on the mantle or hanging above a fireplace. It is truly a beautiful machine.
This weapon does have a 190 lb. draw. While this is not the heaviest draw on the market (or even the heaviest draw on this list), it is something to keep in mind. For any shooter that has not used a cocking rope before, this 190 lb. draw will take some getting used to. However, once a shooter is comfortable with reloading the BearX Constrictor, it is the perfect bow to take with you on just about any trip.
This is a kit that includes almost everything necessary to outfit a crossbow hunt, including a reliable anti-dry fire device, three BearX TrueX arrows, an illuminated scope, rail lube, string wax, and an adjustable sling for ease of transport.
