    This is apparently out of production, but the specs are still available here. This seems to have been a pretty decent crossbow for the money. Comes with a cheap red dot. I did kill a deer with it, but learned that crossbow hunting is not my thing.

    Here's the bad news about mine. The last time I went out hunting with it last fall, I came in and placed my decocking bolt in place, fired into my backstop, and heard a weird noise. The string partly jumped the decocking bolt, I guess. It did fire it, but weakly. I do not see any damage to string, cables or limbs, but I am not an expert on this stuff. EDIT: I took the bow out yesterday and shot it something like 12-15 times. No problems at all.

    Here's the better news. I am including a rope cocking device, and the decocking bolt. Also have some string lube or whatever it's called...I think that's it, but if I turn up any other crossbow-related stuff, I'll throw it in.

    Let's call this one $100 in Walnut Cove.

    opening day bump. Pick up in Walnut Cove at 2pm, sight in at 3pm, hit the woods at 4pm, drag your deer home at 5pm. It's just that easy!
