Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic First bow!!! I recently bought my Wildcat (my first crossbow) just in time to finish up deer season, I scoped it in at the Bass Pro range and had it pracitally drilling the same hole at 20 yds. within 7-8 shots. When I got home to check it at 30 and 40 yds, it was dead on. A buddy of mine who is an avid compound bow hunter tried a few shots and REALLY liked it. He said that I had found a really nice bow. I have yet to take a deer with it yet but feel very confident that it'll do the job. It is very comfortable to carry with a sling. My only issue is that it was advertised to come with a four bolt quiver when in fact it came with a three bolt quiver. The BPS associate stated that management would be made aware of the issue after several boxes were checked and found to have the same quiver, All in all. it's a great bow. I love it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Starter I bought this crossbow as my first crossbow and I'm very happy with it. It is really easy to use and shots really straight. The only down side is that it comes with the red dote sight. I went out and bought the 4X32 sight for it about couldn't be happier. November 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great bow I bought this as my first crossbow i always shot compound until i was injured an couldnt anymore write out of box at twenty yards i was 2 inches off bulls eye shooting a group the size of a pop can love this bow cant wait to use it in the woods September 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by USA Made, Quality Craftsmanship This is a great bow, shoots really fast with 100 grains heads, pretty slow with the big 170 grain mechanical heads. We marked off 35 yards in the last sighting in sequence, and the accuracy was still within 8 inches of each other on three shots, just using a shooting stick. A tripod would be be better. The bow is quieter than I expected. The height of the fore grip makes it more likely you will place your thumb in the groove, than sticking it up in the air and having the string ripping on it. I really love the pistol grip. The grooves on the rear of the stock butt could be deeper to help hold the cocking string in place. Nice bow, good job. October 1, 2012

the best scope is the one that you like the best and are most comfortable with. I like the red dot scope on my Wildcat. the dots show up good in low light conditions.

The 4X32 is a lot better hands down. It has multiple crosshairs which is great for when you are shooting at a target that can move.

Use a 4x32 scope. It is much easier to see what you are shooting at and does not need a battery.

A: 
I think it depends on the terrain. If your close to the ground with a kinda thick under brush then the red dot. If your up in a tree stand with better visability then the scope.

You NEED a bow press Please don't try and change the strings yourself. Take it to your local bass pro dealership or to a local hunting store that has a bow press and get them to do it for you

A: 
I personally use 20" Easton Powerbolts. They have longer fletchings than the stock Barnett bolts. This gives the Eastons a flatter trajectory over a longer range. It's about a 4in elevation difference @ 40yds meaning: the Eastons hit 4in higher than the Barnetts at that distance. Now, there is a slight tradeoff. The Eastons move slightly slower than the Barnetts for the simple reason a longer fletching produces more drag. But the difference is not that noticeable. Also, in a crosswind, the Eastons will drift more than the Barnetts. That's b/c the longer vanes catch more wind. But, the Eastons are more consistent in their flight behavior due to the longer fletchings. Again, this is not a 'brand issue,' it's fundamental aerodynamic principles. You could pick another brand if you like. I choose longer vanes for higher predictability of bolt flight. Hope that helps.

Not noisy enough to scare the deer away. I had 2 Bucks stand around after i missed on the first shot and reloaded. Then after i shot the second time the buck i didn't shoot stayed around till i got out of the tree.

Like any crossbow it will make some noise. I like to compare it to opening up a can of soda when talking about the noise. The Barnett Ghost just came out and it is much quieter than this model.

I opened the package the sales rep gave me and installed the broadheads, only to find out they were a little longer. Any issues with this? I presume the sales person did so, so I could have the broadhead extend beyond the bow a little?

Yes, but with EVERY change in either Length of BOLT or WEIIGHT of Broadhead, you must re-zero your sights. I failed to re-site in after changing to an Easton Shaft with a broadhead that came with the Bow and was 16" high at 30 yards. AND I missed a nice Hog due to it.

Say homey 125 grain is the recommended but you can go with 100's or 125's or I even have sum 140's. So its all good/ By the way what are you hunting up your way. I mean I could come up for a world class whitetail hunt in Ontario.
