Hunting crossbows primarily refer those which are used in the practice of hunting. They were however used in wars and battles as well.
The Crossbow has evolved since then and now has even evolved to such an extent that it is used for an event in the Olympics as a shooting event which requires the people who take part to shoot it with precision and accuracy.
Though cross bow hunting has now become obsolete thanks to the advent of new and modern weapons, this activity is no longer seen and hardly happens if some does it for the aesthetic pleasure of it. The modern form of this activity however does not rely on primitive tools such as wooden bows and dolts.
The new versions of this involve equipment made from harder material and more dependable elements which allow the user to implement more care and precision when it comes to practicing it. For hunting though this practice is obsolete. As of now, the gaming perspective of this activity is what draws the most attention. Someone who can use it with maximum precision gets the rewarded for defeating his opponents.
The game format of this activity is more of a test of patience, skill and balance. The person who nails the target the best and the closest is regarded to have the most out of all these virtues.

But hunting is not the primary motive of learning this activity and can be used as a mere pastime for recreational purposes. Crossbows are known to lend a form of supreme authority to person who holds it as if it were a sign of might and greatness and a capacity to be able to outdo others if and when required.
