I've been interested in making myself a crossbow for a while now. After some online searching and several DIY videos I've found this forum. My goal is to make a strong, preferably long-range crossbow for practice and ultimately when I am assured that I can do it cleanly, hunting. To do that, of course, I need to learn how to.
What I am stuck with right know is understanding what kind of prod I need to achive the things I want and I would very much appreciate if you could help me with that. If you think I should learn something else related to the subject before that, I am very open to any and all suggestions as I have no practical information about crossbow making and very few theoretical information about it.
Thank you for your time and knowledge.
