2013's best crossbows

Interest in crossbow shooting and hunting continues to grow as increasing numbers of states pass legislation allowing crossbows during deer, bear, hog, turkey and other hunting seasons. For example, in 1980 only two states allowed crossbows during the regular archery deer seasons. Today, 20 states consider crossbows as “archery tackle,” and four more states approving crossbows for deer hunting under special regulations. Crossbows are also legal for use during firearms seasons in 13 states. Fifteen states now allow crossbows for all legal game in season.
