I will never shoot at a deer no matter if I was using a recurve,compound or xbow past 30 yard's.
What I am worried about is the K/E light bolt. With the speed of todays xbows and durable carbon bolts you have no worries here out to 40 or 50 yards. Probably in the 70 ft lb range.
What is the min poundage you recommend? 150
What FPS due to lighter arrow/bolt? You should have no problem getting one at 150 lb draw to shoot 300 fps.
Is the recurve or compound better? Compound is faster and easier to cock but recurve is simpler and cable replacement is cheaper. The recurve ones are probably lighter weight as well.
They even have some with the bow mounted backward's.
I don't have a clue what is better and why? Supposedly it is supposed to be more efficient (less stroke length) and better stored energy. I don't know much about those however.
Would you start out used to learn on ? The cool thing with an xbow is the learning curve is minutes and not months like a compound or recurve bow. It is as simple as a firearm. I would buy a high quality used one and go from there. Let someone else take the depreciation. Check it over good though in case it has been dry fired.
