|Coming to a freezer near me!|
So, it is late July and already my mind is on the upcoming deer season. In fact, I want to share a picture of the big guy who is invited to our freezer right around the beginning of October. Man, he is going to taste great - w00t!
As a disabled hunter, a crossbow is a consistent tool of choice. It is undeniably lethal as well as convenient. It is quiet and doesn't scare the neighbors like the crack of a rifle. It is also undeniable in its inconvenience also. Crossbows are difficult to cock and even more dangerous to de-cock if you do not get a shot at 8-point, pig or gobbler.

No more worries about having to make your one shot count either. Finally, you can reload the bow while in the stand yourself.
It shoots at a decent 300 feet per second which is plenty of power to kill a deer, pig, coyote, etc.
Their website did not give the weight of the weapon which I would assume would be a bit heavier than the typical crossbow due to the added CO2 tank. So, a disabled hunter may need some assistance getting the weapon up onto a shooting mount or rest.
I was very impressed with the scope choices that come standard on the bow. Most of the time, the scopes that come on a crossbow is just to the left of pure junk. These, however, are high-quality crossbow scopes with a very nice reticle picture and dot system to quickly sight in your target. Your choice of standard or illuminated scopes is available. The illuminated scope comes with both red and green lighting and the brightness is adjustable to your liking.
When the bow was originally created around 2011, the price-point was a bit high, but it is now available from Parker Bows at $550 for the standard sight and $600 for the illuminated sight.
