    got a suggestion for you....friend of mine did this...already had a crossbow (recurve)...and was considering a ground blind...he made a 'mock up' of the ground blind out of cardboard....it gave him a better sense of how much room he actually had....

    if I had the money...I'd be buying a Primos double bull blind....

    That's the first time I've ever read someone claiming that compounds are faster and quieter than recurves? I've hunted with both and I now hunt with a recurve it's by far quieter than my compound and it's way faster too. Even most makers of crossbows claim recurvers are quicker and quieter.

    Quieter, but not faster. And there are some newer design compounds that are nearly as quiet, but they will always weigh more, just as the recurves of any worth will be wider.

    Thanks for all the help. It is greatly appreciated.

    I've decided on an Excalibur Axiom as my first crossbow.
