No big deal but the wrist pain is alot of the reason I was having issues it seems. It doesn't hurt much lately, and will be taken care of on the 28th if all goes well if not it'll go away eventualy.
< 25 ft. lbs.
Small Game (rabbit, groundhog, etc.)
25-41 ft. lbs.
Medium Game (deer, antelope, etc.)
42-65 ft. lbs.
Large Game (elk, black bear, wild boar, etc.)
> 65 ft. lbs.
Toughest Game (Cape Buffalo, Grizzly, etc.)
that is the generally agreed upon numbers. so for deer your in the clear but you may watch going after some of the bigger game
