A Mississippi man’s four year hunt for a six-point management buck ended on Oct. 20 with a shockingly rare 36-point deer.
Hog hunting is a thrill all on its own—but stalking pigs through the dense Florida brush and getting into bow range? Now you're talking about adventure. Editor in Chief J. Scott Olmsted recently had the opportunity to join Horton Crossbow Innovations for such a trip, with hopes of attained his first-ever archery kill.
Crossbow bolts are lighter and shorter than arrows used in vertical bows, plus they receive a more abrupt delivery of force and fly at higher speeds. All these factors affect arrow behavior in flight, especially with broadheads. Many companies now offer heads tuned for use with crossbows to optimize performance—both in the air and in game.
