Best Barnett Crossbows For Hunting and Target Shooting
The Whitetail Hunter 2 does not have a step-through riser but is surprisingly 0.5 pounds lighter than the whitetail STR. Instead, it features a magnesium riser and an anti-vibration foot stirrup, which has a slim design. In fact, the whole crossbow has a slimmer form factor as compared to the whitetail pro and this largely contributes to making it lighter. In the field, this bow will be easy to carry and easy to maneuver with, especially considering that its width from axle to axle is only 16.125”.
Its limbs are made of a lightweight composite material while its string has dampeners waiting for it after firing. These make it super quiet and very effective at hunting stealthily in the woods. Additionally, it is built with Barnett’s trigger technology, which makes the firing process effortless, quick and reliable. This technology complements its stealthy characteristic to make it a very effective and efficient hunting tool.
When cocking its string, you pull a 150-pound draw weight over a 12.5” power stroke and engage several features such as an anti-dry fire trigger system and a finger safety reminder system, which basically make the bow safer to use. On firing, the bow delivers the arrow at speeds of up to 350 FPS, generating 103 Ft. lbs. of kinetic energy, making it effective at long-range shooting.
