I went hunting with a friend from work and heard a crossbow shot for the first time. I was shocked at how loud it was. I have never been an obsessive speed guy, I always went for more quiet. When I heard this thing I could not help thinking how does a deer not jump that string. The crossbow was a Horton, don't know the model but I would bet it's not much faster then my Nemesis. I have been thinking that as I am getting older that I would have to consider a crossbow as an option for hunting. To be honest after hearing a crossbow shot I'm not sure that a limb change would be a better option.
