					Archery Bow vs. Crossbow
•         The differences between an archery bow and a crossbow
     aren’t really that much. The obvious differences are probably
     their weight, how to hold it, and the difficulty to learn using
     each one. In bowhunting, it all boils down to taking down the
     target; regardless of which kind of bow is used, their killing
     potential is the same and are affected by the same factors.

• The Learning Period
•
•      Between a crossbow and an archery bow, the crossbow is
  a bit easier to learn. A crossbow is fashioned with a trigger
  that makes it easy to shoot; whereas, an archery bow cannot
  be simply used by pulling a trigger. The most difficult thing to
  learn in using a crossbow is maintaining a proper stance and
  making sure that the bolt is straight in place; in other words,
  ensuring that the bolt is cocked properly so it can be fired
  straight where it is aimed at.

• Shooting Distance
•
•      Although this matter may be dependent on the bow’s
  model – regardless of whether or not it is an archery bow or
  cross bow – the crossbow typically fires its load farther than
  archery bows. When it comes to bowhunting using archery
  bows, it is necessary to get in close at least twenty yards of
  the prey before shooting; whereas, a crossbow can be shot
  from a farther range.

• The Weight

•        The weight is an important aspect when it comes to
    bowhunting. A crossbow is marginally heavier than an archery
    bow; this means that a crossbow can only be held in proper
    stance for a minute or two before the need to lower it comes.
    While an archery bow’s weight is distributed evenly, a
    crossbow’s weight has a heavier front than its back part.

     - Dexterity: Right or Left Hand
• Weather Factor
•      Using a bow on sunny days does not really affect the two
  kinds of bows, but when the weather is a bit snowy, using a
  crossbow is the appropriate choice. To properly use an
  archery bow, one’s movements must not be limited by
  clothing, because there are physical actions required to fire:
  Aim, cock, and shoot, whereas, using a crossbow just needs to
  be triggered to fire.

• Final Verdict
•      In bowhunting, the crossbow is better in terms of
  distance and simplicity. Although it is quite a bit heavier and
  more difficult to wield, it still outweighs archery bows. Also,
  the fact that it can be used under any kind of weather makes
  it even greater in comparison.
