A crossbow is actually a great weapon for a beginning hunter as they take less strength and ability than a regular prow. According to HowStuffWorks.com 😛 TAGEND
When using a traditional bow, an archer must glean, aim and shoot in somewhat quick sequence. The longer it takes the archer to purport, the more fatigued his arm will become, and the less accurate his kill is likely to be.
Being able to aim and shoot promptly expects lots of practice. But if the archer use a crossbow, he can draw the string — or cock the crossbow — and leave it that way as long as he needs to.
An archer who isn’t very tall can’t use a very long bow. If he isn’t very strong, he also can’t draw the string on a powerful bowing. In other words, a person’s size and upper figure strength limit the sizing and strength of the prow he can use.
With a crossbow, though, an archer can use his strongest muscle groups — the ones are available in his thighs and buttocks — to draw the string.
A crossbowman can even use tools like levers or cranks to supplement his strength. This means that a crossbowman can use a more powerful weapon than a traditional archer with the same amount of strength.
