Make the Leap to Crossbows


Make the Leap to Crossbows

by Ted Lund

Across the country, outdoorsmen are getting geared up for the start of archery season. Many are combining the thrill of traditional bowhunting with the accuracy, lethality and reliability of firearms and transitioning to crossbows.

“It is like the best of both worlds,” says avid archer-turned-crossbow enthusiast, Jim Ross. “The accuracy, reliability and stealth are unparalleled.”

Like others, Ross started hunting with traditional firearms like shotguns and rifles. But eventually, the avid Central Florida outdoorsman graduated to a more challenging world — compound bows.

“I saw it was a combination all the things that make gun hunting fun and the aspects of bow hunting that make it so addictive,” says Ross.

This season, avid hunters looking to expand their horizons have a wealth of options. One great bow setup to get into the sport is the new Legend Ultra Lite from Horton Crossbow Innovations.

The Legend Ultra Lite combines Horton’s legendary performance in an ultra-lightweight, complete package with the stopping power to drop big game in its tracks — thanks to its 175-pound bow assembly powered by 13-inch HL Limbs. Featuring a lightweight carbon injected polymer barrel built on Horton’s new ABX (Adjustable Bullpup Crossbow) Stock, the bow offers personalized comfort and ease of handling in close quarters.

The perfect choice to make the leap to crossbow hunting, the Legend Ultra Lite package comes complete with a Horton 4×32 multi-line scope, a Horton 3-Arrow Quiver (with ambidextrous side-mount bracket) and three carbon arrows. Archer’s have the choice of building the bow built with or without the patented ACUdraw or ACUdraw 50 cocking mechanism.

It’s the complete package, in one performance-packed, affordable setup.

Horton Crossbow Innovations manufactures quality crossbows and accessories, made in the USA, and designed for optimum fit, form, and function.  The company’s long-term objective is to produce highly effective, reliable and affordable designs broadly accepted by hunters and recreational shooters of all age groups, physical abilities, and genders.

Where to Vacation? Go Big or Stay Home!

We speak about luxury vacations, budget vacations, vacations that are fun for the kids, and many more areas of travel at this time of year. But there is also a category that many do not touch upon because they “assume” it is far too difficult for those on a budget to be able to enjoy these jaw-dropping wonders. However, whether you are a backpacker looking to “become a journeyman” and all you need is the price of the plane ticket; or one that is saving up for that “ultimate trip,” these are locations where either can go to create memories that will be among the greatest and grandest of their entire lives.


How Are Retail Sales in 2017?

Despite consumer uncertainty, as well as a very sluggish beginning to 2017, the U.S. retail sales industry is projected to increase 4% this year. Headlines show that many retailers and companies posted “soft” holiday sales to end 2016, which caused some notable retailers to either cut jobs or close stores as a result. However, when it comes to 2017, the National Retail Federation (NFR) released an economic forecast projecting the retail industry (this excludes automobiles, gas stations, and restaurants) to grow and reach that 4% increase aim.
