Hunting requires stealth and patience – more so with crossbow hunting because you have to get so much closer to your prey. These five crossbows have been designed to reduce noise and vibration levels, while still delivering a powerful shot.

Whether you’re just getting started with crossbow hunting or are looking to upgrade, the Wrath is an excellent choice.
Quiet Your Crossbow with Noise Dampeners
No matter which crossbow you use, you can make it quieter with noise and vibration reduction. This will ensure your shots are as quiet as possible.
Noise dampeners are accessories that help to muffle the sound of a crossbow when fired. They work by absorbing the energy created by the crossbow string upon release and helping to reduce the amount of sound generated. Most noise dampeners are made from lightweight materials such as rubber or foam and can be easily attached to the limbs and string.
Using noise dampeners can make a huge difference in the amount of vibration, and therefore, noise your crossbow makes when fired. This can be especially beneficial if you’re hunting in an area with many other hunters or in a place that sound will carry. The quieter you can make your crossbow the better success you should have.
So, if you’re looking to make your crossbow as quiet as it can be, invest in some noise and vibration reducers before your next hunting trip.

The Bow Bully,
I find it most interesting that Excalibur manages to make a high tech crossbow without going to a compound limb design. Are they the only company currently using traditional crossbow limbs?
I know everyone at the company hunts, and gives feedback from the field…which is way cool, of course. 🙂
Blessings to you,
There are a few companies who still make recurve crossbows. Currently, we carry Excaliber and Barnett recurves for hunting, with a couple of smaller pesting crossbows from CenterPoint and Bear.
Cool; thanks for the info 🙂
