Are Crossbows going Vertical?

I came across a video on youtube where a guy was shooting a Vertical crossbow. I have shot bows for 30 years and I could see the advantages of having it vertical. Power stroke, the ease of getting around through the woods, shooting less poundage and shooting from a freestanding or off hand style is  more accurate. The shoulder stock would certainly give it more stability. The weight of the bow was about 5 1/2 pounds, that has got to be a big +. Thumbs up

Vertical crossbows look odd

Vertical crossbows look odd to me.  I don't think they'll go mainstream, but who knows my crystal ball is broke from time to time...

Aimming the "vertical Crossbow"

This bow can acccept a scope as well as use the conventional peep in the string method. It does have a very nice intergrated 3-5 pin sight system that can be moved laterally.

I think JAG is Jerry Goff - Jerry Goff Host of Knockout Hunting Adventures demos the New In-Line Crossbow by Hickory Creek and Draw-Loc.

You can go to youtube and search "in-line" crossbows and see his videos.

A pretty neat idea - wish I thought of it first.  What is the price?  That will determine IF crossbows go verticle - along with durability.  I think the handle and the connecting bar need more engineering work to look more like a hunting instrument.

Might be tough to shoot from the prone position.  Big smile
