Crossbows are Noisey and have too many moving parts that can break. The best hunting weapon is a standard recurve bow. I replace my string every 3 years but ive never had one break. Ive had my recurve bow for 20 years and never had a problem with it. The newer recurves are made of better longer lasting materials,have more power and are really accurite.
Its not hard to learn how to shoot them. Im thinking of buying a new takedown recurve. If you do get a recure get a good quallity one. You will never regret it.

Im debating what to get either a long bow, or a cross bow but I don't know what the best would be for my bug out kit. I like the idea of a longbow cos it pretty much won the 100 yr war. Any suggestions?

A good old staff is good enough when you have enough room to swing it.
