To the OP,There are many crossbows on the market today.Find an archery shop that carries several brands,and then shoot as many different one's as you can,and decide which fit's your need's best.
You'll be surprised by the difference between each crossbow.Some are very noisy,some are very heavy to hold offhand and shoot accurately.Some are very wide,and that affects the ability to hunt from blinds,etc.
Don't get caught up with all the high FPS claims that the mfg's claim,most won't come close to that in a hunting set up. Just about any 150-175lb bow will put meat on the table,at ranges of 50 yards or less.
