Umarex Javelin

Anybody here tried deer hunting with the ‘new’ air ‘bows?’ Saw a Tim Wells video where he whacked a Texas coyote with one. I obviously don’t need to take up yet another hobby, but it looks kinda neat!

Amazon has one that throws a carbon- crossbow looking dart around 350fps…

I have not considered getting one for deer hunting, but as an air gunner I have thought about one as a toy. Maybe shoot the occasional coyote that roams through the neighborhood.

Pretty interesting concept, but if you're deer hunting you have to use it during firearm season only.

I found a video or 2 of guys hunting with these successfully. So - I guess it could be done. Heck, my kids do most of the freezer filling now. I only shot 1 doe last year.

Didn’t know if anyone here might have tried the ‘airgun’ or ‘airbow’ thing for deer.

I thought this was an interesting idea though. I haven’t archery hunted in decades, but have been contemplating on taking one with a crossbow this year. This Umarex thing is cheaper than a crossbow!

I do like the price of it compared to the Crosman air bow

Which like the Umarex is not actually a rifle.
