5 Quietest Crossbows that Give You the Edge Over Prey

Hunter looking through scope of CenterPoint Wrath crossbow.

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. 

TenPoint Siege RS410

The TenPoint Siege RS410 is one of the quietest crossbows on the market today. With its reverse-draw limb configuration, it delivers shots at 410 fps with a super-short power stroke. It has an innovative vibration-dampening system that reduces felt recoil vibration so you can shoot with confidence. It has a pass-through foregrip which helps you steady your shots, giving you greater accuracy and control. This lightweight, dependable, durable crossbow is perfect for hunters looking for an advantage in the field.

Excalibur Bulldog 440

The Excaliber Bulldog 440 is an excellent choice for those looking for extra stealth in the field. It is lightweight and compact, for easy maneuverability in tight spaces. The adjustable buttstock and cheekpiece let you find the perfect fit for your shooting style. The integrated string suppressors help reduce noise and vibration when firing. Its advanced features, durable construction, and noise suppression make it perfect for hunters of all levels.

Barnett Whitetail Hunter 400

The Barnett Whitetail Hunter 400 is ideal for hunting deer in the early morning quiet. It’s lightweight and easy to carry so you don’t have to cut your hunt short before spotting that perfect buck. It features a composite stock that helps reduce sound while shooting and the three-pound trigger pull provides a smooth release. It’s perfect for those looking for a powerful quiet crossbow to take down game with ease.

Wicked Ridge NXT 400

The Wicked Ridge NXT 400 is a powerful and precise crossbow with an ultra-quiet draw. It’s designed to be lightweight but packs a punch. And it’s built to last. It’s ultra-narrow for maximum maneuverability. The silent acu-draw system makes cocking easy and won’t disturb wildlife. Once you pick it up, you’ll want to use it all season.

CenterPoint Wrath 430X

The CenterPoint Wrath 430X is lightweight and compact with excellent performance. It has a powerful draw that provides up to 164 foot-pounds of energy. The adjustable stock ensures a comfortable fit for every shooter. The overall size makes it easy to transport and use in tight spaces. 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.

  1. 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,
