A bit pricy for a kid bow though, collapsible or not.
I sure would not want to depend on that thing stopping any big game though.
In some states only a 35 pound draw weight is required to hunt deer, etc. Check out the video below by Billy Berger from Primitive Pathways, and
you'll see that only a 40 pound bow and arrows with tiny stone points will go in one side of a deer and out the other.
I personally would not own that bow in the OP, simply because it's not my style. But, I most certainly would not want to be shot with it, and I
definitely would trust it to take down large game. That bow could easily shoot a correctly spined arrow upwards of around 160-170 feet per second,
give or take, I would say. With the right broadhead, and the right arrows, it would have no problem effectively killing any large game animal with a
good shot to the vitals.
If Howard Hill was able to take down an elephant with his bow, I would say a 55 pound bow could take down a deer, bear, moose, elk, whatever.
A WORD OF CAUTION FOR THE SQUEAMISH:
This video does show a deer being shot with an arrow. Although the deer is already dead, blood does drip
out of it when it is shot. So if you do not like seeing an animal being shot with an arrow, I do not recommend watching this video:
