I am always taken back by the amount of false knowledge that is out there regarding crossbows. There is so much information that is out there being perpetuated by the anti hunting group that new comers often have a difficult time deciphering the facts from fiction. I understand that there is always going to be a certain element of opinion that is involved when this discussion comes up, but you shouldn't confuse new hunters that are just getting into the sport, just so that you can satisfy your own agenda.
One of the most common misconceptions is the people who actually hunt with crossbows. Most believe that they are only for old hunters, and while this may be a decent portion of the market, there are other hunters out there that make up a good chunk of the overall user base. There are a good percentage of hunters that use a crossbow
because of an existing disability. These hunters make up about a quarter of the market.
Another category that has recently revved up is the youth shooters. I find that using a crossbow is a great thing for new shooters because it allows for a softer introduction into the world of hunting. If you're the type of hunting family who hunts with different weapons (bows and guns) they will help your kids get a holistic concept of trajectory. If you (god forbid) get injured, but you still need to put meat on the table, crossbows become a very good option. If you are someone, like I will most likely be, that will not be able to let go of the outdoors then the getting the right crossbow will be the thing that keeps me out in the in the forest that I love so much.
