Default What kind of Crossbow?

I want to get my 11 yr old son more into archery and less into gun hunting, but he has no desire to put in the practice I require for him to hunt with a bow. So I was thinking of getting him a crossbow for now because I know he would shoot that thing as much as I let him.

Never shopped for one before and really don't know squat about them...shot a couple and they were pretty friggin cool though! What should I look for???

My 1 son shoots a ten point that has the ****ing mechanism. He is 12 and has been able to **** it for past 2 years his self. We have 2 of them and they are great crossbows. They are very accurate out to 40 yards (2" groups with him shooting at 40 yards) no need to shoot any farther. I have twins and my 1 son went to compound this year. They can finally pull the minimum pounds (40#'s) this year. Ten point stands behind the bows too. We had a limb crack and no questions asked they fixed it. I highly recommend Ten Point Bows. They have been shooting deers since they were 8 years old.

I will take a look what we have when I go home. They are on the lower end of the Ten Points. I spent about $450.00 for mine with scope, quiver and bolts on them, but that was a few years ago. Their bottom end bow will work just fine. One of mine is 165# the other is 175#. They both shoot the same.
