Best Rated Crossbow for Deer Hunting



Crossbows have a place when it comes to deer hunting. The challenge is still getting close to game when hunting with a crossbow, but these pieces of equipment offer more reliability with hunters that have not had the time to master more traditional archery equipment. Browning Crossbows has just released on of the best rated bows we’ve see yet, the OneSixTwo Crossbow from the line of ZeroSeven Crossbows. The OneSixTwo will feature Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camouflage and will be made in the U.S.A.

Built for speed and accuracy, a must for deer hunters everywhere, the OneSixTwo is rated to shoot at 370 FPS. The crossbow is also packed with industry leading patent pending technologies.

The Browning Crossbow OneSixTwo ships fully assembled. Additionally it will have the Browning patent pending Crank Cocking Device (CCD) installed from the factory and will ship in the Browning TPS (Total Protection System) Travel Case. The heavy duty case has large latches and balanced carry handles to keep the bow protected in storage or travel. The bow also comes equipped with a bore sighted Cross 1.5-5 x 32 mm push button illuminated crossbow scope with auto shut off. Three 22″ Browning carbon arrows are also included


Hunters familiar to the quality of a rifle’s trigger will appreciate the Triggertech trigger system in the OneSixTwo crossbow. The trigger has only a 3 lbs pull weight and with the Frictionless Release Technology, a responsive and smooth release. The frictionless sear on the trigger allows for a smooth feel with out any trigger creep.

For added safety, the ADF (Anti-Dry Fire) feature will not allow the safety to be off if an arrow hasn’t been loaded. In addition, the Triggertech designed trigger won’t fire unless the arrow has been loaded with the proper vane facing down. This ensures positive contact between the arrow and the string.

The patented flight track hook groove keeps the cams aligned when cocking the bow. This design allows for an even and consistent draw and results in better timing for the cams when fired producing repeatable accuracy.

The OneSixTwo comes with the Browning Crank Cocking Device. This easy to use cranking system reduces the draw to just 17 lbs. and stores in the cheek piece of the bow for easy deployment and cocking. Simply press the button on the butt stock and the check piece lifts up revealing the cocking mechanism.

The soft touch rubber textured feel Comfort Ledge Palm rest has proprietary rubber finger reminders that help with vibration, sound suppression and added safety for the user when firing.

The quiver can be placed on either side of the bow and lines up parallel to the stock using the left or right picatinny rails. There is also a rail on the bottom of the forearm for added custom ability of a grip or other accessories. The OneSixTwo has an MSRP of $1,400.00 and a MAP of $1,200.00. We rates it as one of the best crossbows for hunting deer that we’ve seen yet in this price range.
