A Ravin R-9 that’s slightly used . Not the fastest Ravin but still clocked at 390 FPS .

Well it's only 390 FPS there other one is 420 FPS . I say that tongue in cheek so to speak but a new one thats 420 is in the 2G+ neighborhood . So for what little archery I'll do anymore this thing is plenty for what I'll need .

Still be nice if I had a piece of marsh on the Eastern Shore of Maryland for Sika deer 8)

I started with a Parker crossbow, axle holes in the cams were oblong in short order. It was slow, most deer hit in the spine from ducking the string. Upgraded to an Excalibur with 240 lbs of limbs to cock. A lot faster and no cams to wear out!

I have several friends that would rather shoot coyotes then deer or game birds , I’ve kinda gotten to the point of it don’t taste good I don’t usually mess with it . With one exception ! I like shooting Canada Geese and they’re not the most palatable thing I ever cooked . Now I will shoot coyotes but it’s by opportunity only I don’t make a point of chasing them .

Parker vertical bows were or are still made about 60 miles from me . I dunno if they made the crossbows there or not .

Coyotes is why I have a Ruger M77 All Weather in .22 Hornet. Wish it wasn’t $40+ for a box of rounds...

Suppose I could use the .308 but man I can’t stand that rifle.

A set of hornet dies, box of Hornady Vmax, a pound of IMR 4227( MY GUN LOVES IT) and you can shoot a lot of yotes!

I acclimated myself some in the house with the Ravin today . Looked at the owner’s manual then watched a bunch of Ravin YouTube videos . The cocking , setting the bolt , removing the bolt and decocking went smoothly .

I wanna get a pair of they call them dampeners I call them string silencers for the thing as well as some of what Ravin sells for the cables and string . I also need to get a target for crossbows so it’ll stop the bolts those thing are way to expensive to loose from shooting thru stuff .
