I generaly use my 80 pound compound bow for everything, and have been using the same arrows for awhile now years and years, Victory VAP 250 spine.
But I dont shoot at anything but targets, and would not shoot at anything smaller then a good size buck, preferably full grown elk would do, anything
I would hit, it would be a pass-through short of hitting bone dead on, and even then depending on the arrowhead, it would still crush right through
But anyways, I only shoot for fun. But! Went hunting last summer. Just ended up just going for a walk in the woods with my bow. Ended up being a bit
of a field trip, which I was fine with anyways.
In fact wasn't even woods, more like jungle, some places I drove to, I would need a machete and a chainsaw and preferably a bulldozer to clear a path,
just so I can get 20 feet ahead. I went to this one area some dudes I sometimes see at the range told me about, So I thought I would check it out on
my little field trip, but latter when I got back and talked to them about it, turn out they don't even hunt in WA state only once in a while because
of that reason, you cant get 10 feet without a machete and hours of clearing bush, but once in a while if they wait around long enough they get
But anyways I dont subscribe to the whole use a different weight arrow or a lower poundage bow depending on the situation as even a little change in
anything would change were your arrow goes by a lot. I think whatever you use, you got to stick to it. And the only way I would not get a passthorugh
on something as small as a racoon or squirrel is if I shot it past 150 yards.
Really If I shot at a rabbit with that thing, it would scewer it into the ground or whatever is behind it, if it did not get a clear passthrough. But
like I said I mostly use my bow for fun and not much else, If I need to I will, but dont really need to.
