IF chasing rabbits with a cheap POS xbow it would be 31 years or so
over those years I have nailed deer, squirrels, starlings (judo heads work great) a terrifying chipmunk or two, carp, pigeons,, an ill possum and distemper stricken posse of racoons, one really stupid crow and a feral alley cat that was killing some ducks

Hunted 5 years with the compound, then after an accident started hunting with the crossbow and have stayed with it, going on 17 years with the crossbow.

I have had my Excalibur Relayer for 19 years now and have hunted with it every year. I borrowed a crossbow for the two years before that. That would give me 21 years with the crossbow and total 25 years with a bow.

Just started last year.

(There was a previous posting on this question but I can't locate it. Maybe somebody else can)

Exocet your options and exCalibur8 your sights.

About 25 years with compound. starting with the first Whitetail Hunter, and one year with my Exocet. Good X-bow, good results! Striper

I'm on my fourth crossbow season, although the first season I only went out once or twice.
