Go to http://theKrave.net to watch the video version... On this episode of The KRAVE we visit with Ravin Crossbow's Adam Ganske at their headquarters in Superior, Wisconsin and get the full run down on the baddest new crossbows on the market. Join us as we learn about the safety and technological features of the R9 and R15 crossbows and see first hand how and why they are so deadly accurate. We also get the meaning behind one of the coolest brand names in the outdoor industry. When you're afield with one of these it's definitely "Time to Prey". Even if you’re not a crossbow hunter, it’s impossible to ignore the Ravin. Thanks for listening!
