Please recommend me the best hunting crossbow and arrows

Post by LavaRed » Thu Oct 28, 2010 11:10 pm

I recently found my father's bow. It's a normal, old-fashioned flatbow, and I've gotten better with it in a short time.

However, the 5 odd target arrows that were with it are not enough for more serious use. It also awakened in me the old desire to own a good crossbow.

So, my dear friends, I beg you to recommend me the best hunting arrows and the best crossbow I can buy.

Thanks,
Lava

For hunting arrows the Easton FMJ is hard to beat. The metal outer layer really helps penetration coupled with the thin diameter, while carbon makes it light and thin so it flies faster.

Easton FMJ is quite a good brand, it's light and flies faster. Been using them for 2 years, have no complaints)

Best crossbow? Ravin, hands down.

Most reasonably priced crossbow? Something else.
Two of my family members have them. They are amazing.
