I went to a crossbow a couple years ago and I am 53! Anyone who would tell you it isn't right,or the same thing as a regular bow is missing the point of hunting! If I wanted to make things more challenging, I would stalk hunt with a Tomahawk or spear. Getting out there is the main thing! I own a Barnett Brotherhood crossbow and it preforms wonderfully! I picked up a complete package with bolts and a scope on it for around $400! How much you spend is up to you, but I would recommend lighted nocks! Helps find the bolts after the shot big time. Good luck!

Everything gets blurry and becomes one. I now wear glasses for reading up close. But past 30 inches, everything gets blurry with the glasses.
So my concern is, and i'm sure i'm not the only one with this issue, if I wear my glasses to look thru the peep to see the pin but, try to adjust out to 20-30 yards after looking close up, how do others adjust quickly without making a careless or poor shot.
I hope i'm not confusing anyone.

Next question is, those of us with failing to poor eyesight, would you recommend a single pin sight. I've personally never shot one. Also, on my last bow, I used the smallest peep as possible. Would you suggest going bigger with the peep? Thanks in advance for any advice and help.
dead wait, your 47, just a baby fresh out of puberty. you may want to see an eye doctor.
