I believe I would like it to if I was to shoot one so I try to stay away from them. To me There ain't nothing like my compound. Until I get unable to pull it back I think I will have to stick with it. But their again I have never shot a cross bow! I have had the chance a few times just didn't do it I guess  I am afraid I will Like it enough to have to go buy one.

I hate to admit this, but I got a crossbow because I couldn't shoot a compound very well.  I tried a bunch of different things and just couldn't shoot groups good enough to feel good about my ability to make kill shots.  But I shot my hunting buddies crossbow and what a difference.  Now that I have one, I can shoot great groups and I am excited about getting in the woods.

I was never perfect with my compond bow but i never made an unethical shot either and took a few doe (never had a shot at a buck).  8 years ago i injured my right elbow and was unable to shot my bow any longer.  I was so glad that Virginia allowed me (with Dr. report) to use a cross bow but not all counties (including the one i live in) went along with the law until Virginia changed to law completely and now consideres a crossbow archery equipment and can be used during any archery season in th state.  I have killed two doe now with my crossbow and really enjoy it.  Still waiting for that buck to come in though.

Well, crossbows provide me with many years of outdoor shooting fun.
