With North Carolina approving crossbows for use during all archery seasons (and gun seasons as well), I found this review of the latest models of crossbows by Outdoor Life magazine very interesting.
Now if North Carolina would get rid of their ridiculous requirement to get a purchase permit from the local sheriff, I’d be happy. The problem with the law (besides the permit requirement) is that it prevents you from shopping online. Out-of-state dealers are not going to ship you a crossbow and run afoul of state law. I see some road-trips to various archery dealers in my future.
Outdoor Life is also giving away their editor’s choice and best buy crossbows. However, I’d suggest boning up on crossbow history and lore before taking their 20 question quiz. If I got 5 out of 20 correct, I’d be lucky.
