My brother Mark from out west joined us for one of the trips to the range and shot a crossbow for the first time. He really enjoyed it and had fun walking through the woods & shooting some of the 3D course with Tim.
I need to put a plug in for our crossbows. We did a lot of research before buying and after a few years I bought an Excalibur Vixen. Last year we added an Excalibur Phoenix to the family for Tim. We can't say enough about how happy we are with the Excalibur bows - they are sturdy, extremely accurate (don't aim at the same spot on the target twice!), well thought out and the company's warranty is second-to-none.
Anyways - here are some photos from our range visits:
