Wide open question but I think it would depend on what crossbow you have,with my Excaliber Vortex with 200lb pull I have shot and killed deer at 40yds but I generally would not shoot at one any farther than that,however that's just me, I think it would shoot up to 50yds or little more. JMOa question for those of you with a crossbow. can one of yall tell me the range on an average crossbow. i have a food plot i made up for this season for a tricky buck that has been creeping by every yr n its a short plot w a stream between it and my stand, but i was thinking of trying a crossbow on it. furthest shot will b between 60 n 70yrds(estimate)
Just added a H&R 45-70 today.In MS we can use these to hunt deer with during primitive weapon season.Bowtech Patriot VFT (bow) Deer/hogs
Ruger 7 mag stainless/synthetic (rifle) Deer/hogs
Traditions 50 cal nickel/synthetic (muzzle loader) Deer/hogs
Remington 1100 12ga (shot gun) Critters with wings
Bunch of other stuff but these are the ones you will most likely see in my hands in the woods.
