the 45xx means it's 47@28. If it was xx45 it would be 43@28. As long as the limbs are straight and there are no cracks, delaminations, etc. and you draw at least 25-26" it should be enough for deer. Be sure to have an super sharp broadhead and arrows flying perfect. If you draw more than 28", that bow is probably going to be too short for you--might stack, and won't be as forgiving as most that are a bit longer. It will do the job though.
