medieval times, the crossbow was revered as an effective hunting tool, chosen
for its awesome power, accuracy and relative ease of use. With the development
of the firearm, the crossbow faded into history, as hunters became proficient
at taking game at long distances.
Almost half a century ago, Bernard Horton, an accomplished gun maker and sportsman,
recognized that crossbows did not meet the needs of serious modern big game
hunters. However, he realized that the crossbow had the potential to become
an effective close-range hunting tool by today’s standards.
Horton began experimenting with crossbow designs in his workshop, creating
crossbows for his own personal use. The word quickly spread about his amazing
new designs and it was then that the Horton Crossbow legacy was born.
From the very first models, Horton’s designs were rugged, compact and accurate.
Horton’s unique blend of advanced technology and raw power brought the crossbow
out of the dark ages and into the forefront of modern big game hunting. Take
a look at the popular “Horton Scout
” or the well equipped
“Horton Team Realtree TR 175
” and you will immediately recognize
true quality and economy to boot.
