I am 28, 5'5 and 135 pounds, never shot a bow in my life but currently a gun is not an option where I currently live, no way around it at all. So I really want to hunt medium to large size game, from turkey to whitetail to elk. Now in my state, I cannot use a crossbow EXCEPT for rifle season, BUT in Texas, right next to me by about 20 mins, I can hunt all year round with them. Now I went and held a compound bow and a cross at the local archery shop, the crossbow feels cumbersome and awkward as I am a small guy and not extremely strong, the compound felt lightweight and easier to maneuver but I am not so sure I am able to put the time in currently to be a good shot with the compound as the crossbow would be somewhat easier. These are the two I am looking at. Basically the same in price, what do you think would be better for my situation and what I am looking for? I know these are lower end bows but I would appreciate some help on what is the better package as my limit is only around $400 currently and I cannot surpass that and would like to hunt this season for deer. 1. Amazon.com : Diamond Archery Infinite Edge Pro Bow Package, Black Ops, Right Hand : Sports & Outdoors 2. Amazon.com : CenterPoint Sniper 370 - Camo Crossbow Package : Sports & Outdoors Based upon my current situation, which would you go with? Also is crossbow hunting during rifle season that big of a disadvantage? I appreciate any feedback thanks!
