I agree, you should try to find a good shop in your area and ask plenty of questions. If you want to have your best chance at killing something with a bow then I would definetely go with a compound. Don't worry about let-off, I don't think that there are any real laws about that, just that the bow can't lock back like a crossbow. There are plenty of good brands of bows that are good, quality weapons. Bowtech, Mathews, Hoyt, and PSE are just a few of those quality brands. If I were to suggest a brand it would definetely be Bowtech. I have a Bowtech Tribute and it shoots like a dream. I won't shoot anything else, but that's just my opinion. There are other really good shooting bows out there. Take your time, save your money and buy what you really want. Avoid shortcuts, you'll just end up spending more money. Well, I guess that's enough from me. Hope you find what you want. Good luck!
