bow hunter

Luke Clayton

Howdy, Folks!  This week, I'm coming to you from the front porch of my little cabin.  You know, hunting with crossbows has become very popular the past few years as more and more states allow the use of crossbows during the general archery season.

Take a listen, I'd like to talk with you a bit about crossbow history and also shares some safety tips and generally introduce new shooters to this exciting method of hunting that dates back at least 2,000 years before Christ.  

I grew up in a hunting household.   My dad made an annual pheasant pilgrimage to Kansas.  He also spent time stalking javelina and deer in Arizona, but he was always a rifle hunter.
