Pwbergen that should do it! my uncle killed multiple elk with a 52# recurve and zwickey 2 blade double bevel with good foc and almost 650 gr, lets just say routinely buried to the fletch performance. Ranch Fairy has helped popularize what some have been doing for years, he has the ability to test and spread the word more than guys like my uncle.After shooting compound bows for 38 years, I am hunting whitetail deer with a recurve this year.
After watching a bunch of videos on heavy, weight-forward arrows by “Ranch Fairy” on YouTube, my set-up is shooting 700-grain arrows with a two-blade head from a 50-lb. bow. These arrows will fully penetrate a deer from any angle… if I can just get one to stand close enough.
Sometimes we all fail a little bit and thing don't always go as planned. It don't feel good, but it happens. The good new is, the freezer is full and you are still healthy.The absolute worst possible time to find out that your rest is out of tune is when you let an arrow go at a bull.
I'm going to shoot heavier arrows, and better broad heads from here out. I'm currently shooting 455gr platinum pierce arrows with a montauk, granted if my bow was in tune, I would have had more energy, but I still feel the montauk should have held up a lot better.
This guy was hard won, I'm glad things worked out, but I feel terribly for how it worked out.
