Welcome from South Central Kansas. This is a great place to come with any questions you might have as their are many that are willing to share their knowledge & experience.
Welcome also to bow hunting. I got into bow hunting for the opportunity to be able to spend more days hunting whitetails. I have 2 older bows, both PSE, Inferno and Baby G Force. I have taken one trophy (plus many other deer) with the Inferno and my ex BIL who I bought it from had taken several trophys with it. I am still waiting for my first with the Baby G. It may not happen as the made it legal to use a crossbow for those under 16 and over 55. I'm in the later and wanting to get a crossbow. I passed on quite a few deer last season that walked by just out of my comfort zone of 35 yds. I feel that I could increase that yardage with a crossbow. Good luck to you in the upcoming season, you wll gain confidence with practice.
