My buddy is looking to start hunting. He has limited funds and is looking for as close to a complete set up as possible for $600 or less. What do you guys suggest?

Plenty complete kits for sale less than $600.. u don't need one that shoots 1 million FPS.. My Excalibur Axiom shoots less than 300 FPS and it works just fine.. ya don't need a fancy scope either..

Barnett is a good brand at that price level. They have tons of set ups less than $600 including scope and quiver.

you can get the Killer Instinct 370FRT for around 500 bucks at a bunch of places now on ebay.
for even less you can get the same model without the friction release trigger for a little over 400 bucks.
But IMO the trigger on the FRT model is well worth the extra few bucks
For the money it is definetly one of the best deals out there.
Scope it comes with is pretty good, and they shoot GREAT

Many good package deals out there. I picked up a stryker offspring that was a package deal couple years ago and has been great so far

Another vote for an Excalibur. With crossbows, I am a huge proponent of recurves over compounds. You can get them used in that $600 range, and with all the fixins' (cocking rope, arrows, etc..).
Another plus is that Excalibur has what is probably the best customer service of any bow company, crossbow or vertical, so if anything goes wrong he can rest assured Excalibur has got his back. IMO, Excalibur's customer service is almost "too" good, to the point of craziness sometimes the lengths they go to to make their customers happy.
