I could use a little help on this one. Did Horton (in the US) make a Yukon SL crossbow in black with a 175 lb draw? I cannot find any reference to it on any website including Horton's website. I have a copy of their 2005 catalog and it only shows a 150 lb draw version of the Yukon SL in camo. What is even more strange is the picture I was given shows it is a Horton crossbow (on the limb) but the stock is solid and has a built in cheek piece (the 150 lb draw version is a wire-type stock).

Yukon Black??

I was talking to a guy the other day who claimed to have a Horton Yukon with 175lb draw. He called it a "Yukon Black". I have searched and have found nothing on this though.

I've never heard of it either, but you could probably put the front end of a Legend 175 or TR 175 on a Yukon/Summit stock.

I haven't actually tried it, but since the TR and Explorer 150s stocks are the same, and the front ends of the Explorer 150 and Yukon/Summit 150 are the same, I would assume that they are interchangeable.

Just found out

I spoke today with a Horton rep in Ohio named Anna. She confirmed that they did make that very model in 2008. She said it is a jet black Yukon SL body with a 175 lb bow. They made them only for one year and at the special request of a dealer in Wisconsin. Go figure. By the way, I got a better look at the bow. The stock is not solid and it does look just like the camo version of the Yukon SL body but in black.
