The only real advantage I see to crossbows for the way I hunt is the fact that there's no drawing back. I hunt from the ground, and by far the hardest part of using a compound bow is getting to full draw without the deer seeing me. I've considered a crossbow for this reason. It's already "locked and loaded."
