    Welcome to the site
    as for advice on hunting with a crossbow from treestands
    I personally find having a shooting rail helps, and adding as much cover to the stand as possible helps a lot too
    I have made several shooting rails out of pvc pipe
    and then added camo burlap and like materials to hide me better
    also knowing your ranges, using markers, can help too
    i found using different color survey tape, i can wrap about tree's or on stakes makes this easy
    as I too switched from a bow to an X bow due to an injury a few yrs back
    good luck

    Hey thanks for the information, i will keep it all in mind. I was wondering if you could post a picture of the PVC shooting rails you are talking about. i think i would like to build one possibly. thanks.
