You should get the bow at a poundage that is easy for you to shoot everyone is diffrent.Personaly i can pull 70 with no problemb but chose to shoot60 when i have on all my hunting gear on and its 30 deg out its easy to pull and pleanty enough to pass threw any game i hunt.For mid priced arrows i choose gold tip xt hunters or expeditions . Broad heads i use thunder head 100 gr because i shoot atleast 6 does a year on management tags , they are cheap ,fly staight,sharp and have never lost a deer to failure...

Talking A little known fact !

I shoot a 60 lb. bow set at 54 lbs. and hunt in temps that are near zero at times . I use Rage or Spitfire broadheads ( three bladed ) for huinting deer .

Good luck !

If you are planning on hunting something big and you can handle 70# in freezing weather then go that way. If you're shooting 3D or won't be hunting anything bigger than deer, there is no need to go over 60.

Default to the fugitive, cool name

If you can pull 70 straight back with out struggle then do it. Then get those 2 inch rage for that double lung. I use Beman arrows very tough and made in the USA ! If you like harvesting more game more often equip that bow with a sound masking "Deceiver" By Slice A Life Archery.
