Just got home with it tonight taking it hunting in the AM!

I have never owned a crossbow before or any bow for that matter. Any suggestions for routine maintenance and up keep? Bow seems to be in great shape (cams, limbs, string) just want to make sure i keep it that way.

Also any suggestions on bolts/broadheads.

I'm a noob so any advice is welcome.

If you want to learn about Crossbows, go to the website called Crossbow Nation. I did when i started crossbow hunting 3 years ago. Bunch of people on there know everything there is about crossbows and will gladly answer any question you have.

You guys with Parker crossbows. Do yall use the capture nocks Parker recommends?

I saw on their website where they frown upon other styles. Just wondering what the real world experience is.

Once last year I shot way under a buck at 15yds because it wasn't fully seated. Now I double check to ensure it's fully engaged
