Thanks guys - yeah, that will be some good vittles for sure!

MI-B - that Xbow is a Horton Havoc, it's the only crossbow I've ever had, bought it about 4 years ago when Illinois DNR decided to let us start using them for the last month of the season (as of 2017 we can now use them all season).  When I bought it, Horton had just recently closed up shop and hadn't yet been bought out by TenPoint.  Got a great price on it and the reviews were very positive on their reverse draw, but I was still rolling the dice a bit on whether or not I'd be able to get support in the future since they closed their doors.  I like it a lot - the reverse draw configuration brings the balance point back towards the shooter, so it's less front-heavy if you need to hold on target for a while waiting for the shot.  Also a bit narrower and easier to manage in the woods, whether just carrying it or trying to get a shot without banging the limbs.  No regrets with it - the speed and accuracy blow me away, as compared to my vertical bows at least, but bear in mind I don't have any other Xbow experience to compare it to.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
