I started bow hunting 3 years ago. After checking many bows I decided on the PSE, seemed to be the best for the money as I didn't want a real high end bow to start with. I have it set at 55 lbs and a 29 inch draw. I use the predator 200 carbon arrow and a 100 grain tip. Use the muzzy 3 blade for hunting. I have not harvested a deer yet but have enjoyed shooting it, just have not had one give me the opportunity yet. My son tried mine shortly after I made the purchase and he got one for himself and got a nice doe his first year. I now limit myself to 30 yds max. I have shot it from 40 but don't feel that comfortable at that range. Hoping this year my luck will change. I do manage to take a deer with the muzzle loader but would like to score once with the bow.
