Default new bow

I just got a jennings bow and the draw weight is 45lbs... I was wondering if that could bring down a deer? If so from how far? I also need some suggestions on arrows and broadheads that arent to expensive



Thanks

You would have to check your state hunting laws about the min. draw weight, i now in IL it is 40 pounds min, i know it is different in other states. But yes 45 pounds will kill a deer with the proper shot placement, stay away from the major bone structures like the shoulder. the Deer could go 2 yards or 300 yard it just depends on the shot. For arrows i would suggest the Carbon Express Terminator series, fairly cheap. For broadheads you want to go with fixed broadheads not mechanicals, like muzzys, slicktricks etc and and another thing practice practice and practice

It all depends on your confidence level and comfort zone...I would say you could make a clean kill inside 30 yrds...but you may only be comfortable inside 20...

Default Ha there.

Check your game laws in your state on the bow weight.
Arrows i would use heavy alluminum like 2216 XX75 eastons for KE on a already slow speed.
The broadhead lead cutting edge fixed blade only, like a steel-force sabertooth
Range 25yds or less.
This is just my 2 cents.
