Hunting crossbows with unique features
Unlike mini crossbows, hunting crossbows are large and their projectiles are much faster. Their use is quite different from that of small crossbows, and it is important to understand the difference between these two categories before purchasing one. Camouflage patterns are perfect for use in the woods for survivalist purposes, but we also have more traditional models if you prefer a more classic design.
In addition, our selection of hunting crossbows includes a wide range of accessories that can enhance your shooting experience.
Why choose a hunting crossbow?
The crossbow is an iconic and powerful throwing weapon, ideal for precision shooting, recreational shooting, and hunting in countries where it is permitted. Compared to a slingshot, a bow or an airsoft, it offers excellent performance, a more sporting aspect and more intense sensations.
Regardless of the model and brand, the hunting crossbow has several advantages. The 180 lbs crossbows and compound crossbows are perfect for big game hunting and are popular with survivalists.
Various models to suit all needs
We offer different models of hunting crossbows with various draw weights:
- Beginner crossbow: 120 lbs
- Intermediate crossbow: 150 to 175 lbs
- Advanced crossbow: 175 to 400 lbs

Due to their special design, the most powerful hunting crossbows propel their arrows at speeds of up to 360 fps, or more than 390 km/h, making them suitable for target practice at clubs or shooting ranges. These crossbows have a range of 25 to 60 meters, depending on the model, making them a weapon of choice for shooters looking for accurate long-range shooting.

Popular and powerful models
Hunting crossbows are known for their high power and weight. Although they are mainly used by professionals, they are also available to amateur shooters. However, it is important to get training at a shooting club to learn how to handle them properly. Compound crossbows are the most popular for hunting because of their stealthy shooting and exceptional maneuverability, although they are more expensive and complex to use.
