    just got back from new mexico elk hunting,shot 5 arrows at camp and had a limb crack. called pse to help me out and after 1 hour finally got them to first day air new limbs, they said was easy to replace that is a joke.2 days late a guy comes into camp with a tac and after 10 shoots his crank mechanism would not work anymore. so if you are going on a hunt of a lifetime DO NOT take a tac. jeff from wisconsin

    Thats got to be a very frustrating situation, and I'd be pretty angry too....BUT....problems like this are very rare (I know that doesn't help YOUR situation one bit).
    By comparison, look at the problems the Bowtech crossbows have....you'd swear there are as many problems as there are owners.

    Re: Not a BowTech fan

    No kidding. I used to own a BowTech non X-bow. After what I went through with BowTech, I will never own another BowTech product. Nor would I recommend BowTech to anyone.

    Any chance either Tac was damaged getting to the hunt?
    (Did you fly, baggage handlers?)

    How many shots had you put through your Tac before the Elk hunt?

    What went wrong with the other guy's Tac crank mechanism?


    My advice would be, if you are going on the hunt of a lifetime, take three of the appropriate hunting weapons (Rifle, X-Bow, ...), plenty of Projectiles (Cartridges, Arrows), and pack them all separately. Ship two of them well ahead of the hunt.
    Read-up on what African professional hunting companies and guides recommend for those very expensive hunts of a lifetime.
