"TenPoint Crossbow Technologies recently acquired selected assets of Horton because Horton's
capability to run scrubby," stated Rick Bednar, Chairman, President and CEO of Hunter's
Manufacturing who works as TenPoint.
"The business released many of its employees in April 2013 and its primary (secured) lender
lastly seized all Horton's assets, and closed its doors. We have bought equipment, devices and
other picked properties including trademarks, licenses and the rights to the Horton name. It is very
important to comprehend that we did not buy the Horton Archery LLC operation. That operation
not exists, and TenPoint will not continue making or servicing any of Horton's previous or present
bow models," Bednar added.
Horton was the earliest crossbow making company in the nation. The Tallmadge, Ohio based
manufacturer was also the first to present a reverse limb crossbow. And Ottie Snyder Jr., Horton's
media relations manager at the time, contributed in encouraging and advertising using crossbows
for hunting in a number of states, Pennsylvania included. He went to a number of Pennsylvania
Game Commission meetings to speak on crossbows and urge the PGC to enable them for
hunting, not simply for handicapped seekers, however for all seekers. And he did this at several
other state game commission firms.

brand in 1985. Horton, however, sued for the resemblance of that name to theirs, so Bednar
changed the name to TenPoint.

clear that it was neither functionally nor financially sensible to resume the Horton manufacturing
and servicing operation. We plan to spend the months ahead producing a new company with a
new lineup worthy of the storied Horton name.
When it comes to getting Horton bows fixed if something breaks, Rick Weaknecht of Weaknecht
Archery in Kutztown, who was one of Horton's largest dealerships, said that he has some parts in
stock for Horton crossbows once they're gone, he has no access to more.
And as for Bednar's statement of producing a new company with Horton items, Weaknecht said
he assumes from exactly what his TenPoint rep tells him, is that Bednar will reestablish only the
reverse limb crossbow that Horton offered, maybe under a different name as they've done with
sub-branded and cheaper Wicked Ridge crossbows.
As a side note to crossbows, who had actually ever think a crossbow would cost near to $2,000,
the cost of a high-end rifle or shotgun. Yet, according to Weaknecht, he has men coming in the
shop and plunking down this cost for a TenPoint since they needed to forego a household trip or
hold back on buying a brand-new automobile so they can manage these and high-end recurve

that it was neither functionally nor economically prudent to return to the Horton manufacturing and
maintenance operation. Our Website
