Preview the all-new Whitetail Hunter® STR at ATA

Tarpon Springs, FL (January 11, 2019) – Made and designed specifically for the whitetail deer hunter, Barnett’s new Whitetail Hunter® STR features a compact, manageable profile that hunters of all sizes and skills can manage. From adult to youth hunters, the Whitetail Hunter® STR is your go-to crossbow for taking on those trophy bucks.

The newest addition to Barnett’s popular Whitetail Hunter® series, the Whitetail Hunter® STR is easier to cock than ever thanks to Step-Through Riser (STR) technology. The STR reduces the length of the crossbow by integrating the foot stirrup directly into the riser. On foot or in a stand, the Whitetail Hunter® STR hunts light and fast. The crossbow weighs in at just 6.6 pounds and drives an arrow at a scorching 375 feet per second, delivering all the knock-down power you will need for even the biggest deer.

The Whitetail Hunter® STR comes ready-to-hunt with all the accessories a deer hunter needs, including a 4×32-millimeter Multi-Reticle Scope already installed. The Whitetail Hunter® STR is extremely easy to assemble, as well. Simply insert and tighten just one bolt and you are ready to start shooting.

Barnett has the deer hunter covered with numerous safety features, including a TriggerTech trigger, anti-dry fire technology, finger safety reminders, and a patented arrow retainer.

Even with all these features and power, the Whitetail Hunter® STR is among the more affordable crossbows available today. If deer hunting is your passion, Whitetail Hunter® STR is your crossbow.

ATA attendees can learn more about Barnett’s new Whitetail Hunter® STR at the Plano Synergy booth #2705.
