I like the crossbow because they are easy to aim like a rifle but they do take a lot of time to reload which is what my friend keeps telling me. The compound bows is what he owns and he says he can shoot three to four arrows for each arrow I can shoot with the crossbow.
The traditional bows would take more skill but they are easy to fix in a SHTF.
I think for me I would buy a compound bow and a traditional bow. It will be more money but by having the two you can’t go wrong in a SHTF.
Thanks for the info 74, and matt76.
