    Love that in one video the guys says "make your compound or crossbow an even more deadlier weapon", but at the top of the website it says "not suitable for crossbows"

    I don't want to sound contentious here, (compounders don't flame me I shoot compound as well as my recurve), but I have several friends who hunt in the states. My perception thinking back on random conversations with them on hunting goes along the lines of:

    They started hunting with rifles, and wanted to up their stalking / hunting skills so went for the challenge of bow hunting. For them I think it is the familiarity of sighting with the peephole, the speed of the arrows which draws to compounds.. Another big factor is their confidence in their ability to Hit the target, I know it sounds like a contradiction in terms but most hunters I have met have a deep love of nature and wildlife and hate the idea of only wounding an animal. A fact that makes me wonder why 3d archery competitions, which I think appeal because it is emulating hunting, give points for a wounding shot... should take the points away :P

    ouch I feel I am probably upsetting several groups here now..
