Default Crossbow Opinions

I found this crossbow. I am intersted in learning how to use one and take down a deer with one.
Would this be good with out haveing to fork out too much money for one, then decide I dont like it.?

That thing you listed is pure junk! Don't even go there, good products cost money! You can get a great CB fer about $360, Excal Phoenix! Friend there ain't nothing like shooting CB's, its finer than frog hair!

Good advice! Go w/ a name brand for several reasons: You won't get hurt because something broke, you'll get a fair look at xbowing, they have good resale value if you decide it's not for you, and if you have problems, others are available w/ same equipment to give/share tips.
