Default I need crossbow recommendations

My grandson is turning 8 and I want to get him a crossbow. Can anyone point me in the right direction on something he can shoot a deer at 20 yards with? Anyone have a youth one they donít need anymore?

Centerpoint Sniper 370.
I’ve let my gkids shoot mine and they’ve done well with it.

I bought a center point 390 last week when gander had the big half off sale it has an AR style stock so it’s collapsible. LOP can get to a length just about anyone can be comfy.

Thanks guys I will look into these. Definitely need something that will “fit” a kid and still be able to kill a deer.

Barnett makes a recurve one that my 8 year old grandson has. Perfect for a kid to start with.
