In this Horton crossbows review we will take a look at the Horton company to learn more about who they are and how they have made a name for themselves as a leader in crossbow manufacturing and design. Horton Archery started out more than half a century ago when Bernard Horton started designing and creating his own crossbows. Mr. Horton had been in the gun making industry for sometime but always had a passion for bow hunting. Realizing that the traditional crossbow, used in centuries past, could never rival the firearms industry for hunting big game he decided to design his own improved, modern Horton Crossbows.
Words soon spread about these new and improved crossbows and hunters started asking about these new crossbow designs that were known for their new technology and accuracy. For the last fifty plus years Horton crossbows have continued to stand out with the best technology and value. The Horton team always listens to customer feedback and works to improve every design to make the most reliable, best performing crossbows on the market.
Let’s take a look at the Horton crossbows to get a better idea of what the archery products are like and to give potential Horton customers a better idea of what is available.
