Not to be rude or anything, but I don't think I would feel confident shooting 35-40# on something like deer. I wouldn't go below 50#, presently shooting 60#.
I realize that a young person may need to start that low and work up, but is it really adequate for deer size game?

A few years back my wife/hikchick and I (we teach bowhunters Ed for the Idaho F&G) had a female student in the class. That following season she killed a huge bull elk (380 class) with nothing more than a 40 pound bow and a two blade broadhead. I should add the shot was a complete pass through.

Colorado minimum is 35 pounds. That's plenty enough to take deer, elk, or moose.

Thousands of people take elk and moose every year with 40 pound long bows nevermind compounds.
