With more states allowing crossbows, this could be a banner year for those who make, sell and shoot crossbows.
Many crossbow manufacturers have been doing yeomanâ€™s work in recent years, applying the latest technology to build better, faster, quieter and more user-friendly bows. With much of the groundwork laid, several manufacturers adopted an â€śif it ainâ€™t broke, donâ€™t fix itâ€ť philosophy this year, opting to modify or merge existing models to provide more options without sacrificing features and quality.
Others, whether trying to catch up with or get ahead of the competition, are introducing entirely new and different models. And thereâ€™s a spate of new companies joining the group with some great new crossbow models of their own.
With both supply and demand up, dealers may face the biggest challenge in deciding which models and how many to stock. Then again, hunters have to decide which model best suits their needs; and youâ€™ll have plenty of options to choose from.
