Hello guys my names John. I have never owned a crossbow other than hand toy crossbows and I have a few questions regarding my first purchase. The purpose of this bow would be for fun, hunting white tail and smaller game, prepping senario tool and budget option to get into the sport. I would need it to be fast enough to shoot a deer at 50 yards and under without the deer being able to duck the shot and get wounded. I would like it to be a recurve for de cocking ability and ability to fix in the field and restring without crazy tools. It must be accurate enough for ethical kills. I saw a jaguar for 70 bucks and 215 fps. I liked the simplicity and light compact style but wasn't sure how fast i need to avoid deer ducking the shot. I can pay up to 500 bucks but I like getting what i need without paying for what I dont. Thanks guys.
