My Son bought a Browning micro midas 3 from a friend,upgraded sight,and a few Arrow's,$50.
I know nothing about Bow's but want to help him out.
Could this Bow be used for Deer or be modified as needed?
Any help on this is greatly appreciated-Gaff

Illinois hunting regulations require that a bow must be set at a minimum pull of 40lbs. (http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/hunting/documents/deerhuntinginfoandcheckinsystem.pdf

From what I've found online, the Micro Midas 3 comes in 2 different setups, one with 20-30lb draw weight adjustment and another with 30-40lb draw weight adjustment.

If the version your son has is the 30-40lb draw weight version, you can take it into an archery shop to either set it to 40lbs or check to see if it is already at 40lbs, making it legal for deer hunting. If he has the 20-30lb version, then he's got a target shooting bow that can't be used for deer hunting.

Hope that helps.
