I took a step back and looked at how I hunt, and applied my focus to simply what shot best out of my bow. That whole process is what brought me to the dangerous game arrow. Velocity plays a very small factor for me.
And my own personal philosophy of archery hunting is very different than rifle hunting as I think the challenge of archery hunting is getting as close as possible. I know folks here will disagree being a long range forum, I don't want to start an argument... If my hunting style required longer shots I would use a different arrow!
But I think there are similarities to the level of difficulty associated with a long-range rifle shot compared to getting very close to an animal for a close-range bow shot.
