    looking at a fast bow but I just found out that it is a 50-60 lb draw.
    Would you shy away from this for deer hunting and go find one with 70lb?
    how will it change the fps?
    thanks

    If you found a nice fast bow and yet it’s only a 60 max that’s plenty of poundage for deer hunting especially with today’s bows

    Set er up and have fun with it.

    Good luck this fall!

    60lbs is more than enough I have seen a canadian moose go down with 47lbs from a single well placed arrow.

    My current set up is 60 lbs and 29" DL. I am shooting 310 fps and KE of 81. That is more than enough for anything walking North America.

    Get the 60. :peace: :peace:

    yeah, my phoenix at 57# with a dirt-dull broadhead punched right through a deer last year. Unless you realy need the straight trajectory of have bad aim and need to blow through shoulders, 45# should be enough.
