Earlier in the year I purchased a CHEAP cross bow. $80 from Rural King in store. http://www.ruralking.com/mtech-jaguar-175-lb-recurve-camo-crossbow-cr-013a2.html From the beginning I was happy with it, easy to put together and more accurate than I expected. I wasn't sure how it would actually preform with broad heads, and arrow speed. as you can see from the old thread http://www.hipointfirearmsforums.com/forum/f276/new-toy-315132/ I purchased some Muzzy fixed broad heads, re-zeroed it to the demise of my field point bag. Archery started Saturday. I had a good spot 20 yards from an apple tree, and 30 from an oak tree that I had seen the deer frequenting. Last night I sat there until 7:00 and a nice 1.5 year doe came out. I played my patience, because Saturday I took a shot as one was walking, and miserably missed. After what seemed like an eternity she stopped walking and wasn't looking at me. Bow up, and WACK. The arrow went through both rib cage walls and turned the lungs into bits. I must say I am impressed complete penetration from such a low priced bow and broad heads. I'll get about 35lbs of meat out of her.
