Crossbows are a viable option for archery hunters, as they offer an alternative to vertical compound bows. The vast majority of American citizens can use crossbows during the hunting season that spans several months in most states. There is also legislation specific to each state with regards to when and where you may hunt with one; so it’s important not only know your local laws but also familiarize yourself with how many other Americans decide on their own regulations within certain regions.
Here are the Best Killer Instinct Crossbows for 2023

Heritage and values
The Hawk Group is a company that has been in the hunting industry for decades. They are known as one of the most reputable names due to their deep-rooted history and experience with this specific field. With Killer Instinct being one of their newest additions, it’s fair to say there will be an interesting future ahead!
The location of Killer Instinct® Crossbows is Frankenmuth, Missouri. The company that holds this spot has roots in Windom Minnesota and for a while it was only legal to use these weapons amongst hunters on the east coast or up north until recently when crossbow usage became permitted within certain states as well.
For a hunting enthusiast, the hunt is as important an experience as actually catching their prey. Killer Instinct understands this and strives to make sure that every detail of design reflects what hunters truly need in order for them to be successful on all fronts. They are also committed to providing high quality products at fair prices so everyone can enjoy being able to explore nature while still maintaining the quality vs performance graph at top spot.
Awards and collaborations
Despite being one of the newcomers in the hunting industry, Killer Instinct has already won several awards. In 2015 it was awarded for its crossbow by Field & Stream magazine with their “Best of Best” award after winning other competitions and tests. This is impressive as this particular machine-crossbow from KI was not only durable but powerful enough to take down two moose without any problems while using less energy than competitors’ products on average throughout a day’s hunt at 2 miles away per shot!
In 2017 they partnered with Hawke® Optics ̶ leaders in optics when it comes to crossbows ̶ who helped them create new technologies such as high definition sights that can be seen even during low light conditions or foggy days.
As a result of the innovative and reliable Hawke XB30 scope, Killer Instinct has been awarded with two ‘Great Buy’ awards from Outdoor Life Magazine. The first award was given to them in 2016 for their RIPPER 415 crossbow who is equipped with this awesome device; while they won again last year on 2018 as part of the SWAT™ kit that also includes an AR20 air rifle. The RIPPER 415 is the fastest crossbow and has some of the best shots among all models.

New from Killer Instinct is the wide range of crossbows, including a 370 FPS Bone Collector.

The Killertech™ PRO bolts are revolutionary and come with pre-installed lighted nocks that activate when the bolt is fired. The SWAT™ LITE 22” crossbow bolts work best with the Sniper Instincts, but not so much for other models like Wicked Witch because of its shorter length.

Crossbow enthusiasts can choose to protect their crossbows with a hard case, as these tend to wear out or break more quickly. Additionally, fans of the brand will be pleased by its Killer Instinct gear line that includes tees and caps available in different designs for all your needs!
