    My dad traded for a bow for me for my 16th birthday and well i i think i did kinda bad fired it twice and could barely pull it back and when i finally got it back i missed the target hit the lawn chair we had leaned the bow target it on and it clipped it and well i lost the arrow.Second shot hit the deer on the target in the leg. But the bow is pretty sweet it's a jennings machined extreme xlr.
