Crossbow Hunting

Crossbow hunting for the first time.?

I am looking into crossbow hunting for elk after many years of hunting with my rifle.What should I keep in mind before I spend my money? What peak draw weight will I need? I would be grateful for any input & help.

You should first check into the regulations in your state or the state you want to hunt in. I am not aware of any states that allow hunting elk with a crossbow.

If it is legal to hunt with them, I would recommend getting the heaviest weight bow you can comfortably cock. All of the manufacturers offers cocking devices that use mechanical advantage to reduce the effort needed to cock a crossbow. 200# would be ideal.
