I've been reading a lot of posts on here about what bows, arrows, and broadheads people shoot. I seems like more and more people are buying into theory that a good bow has to be super fast. This leads to arrows and broadheads being super light. I think the Archery industry is doing a great job getting people to buy all their little bells and whistles. In my opinion, much of the stuff they are selling is just junk, and really not neccessary for the average deer hunter. I am a firm believer in weight over speed when it comes to arrows. Especially after seeing a guy I hunted with a few years ago switch from his standard compound bow to an over-draw and carbon arrows. Sure it shot good and the arrows went 4,000 feet a second or some such crap....but he never found the first four deer he shot with it because of bad penetration. I put more stock in good hunting practices rather than hi-tech equipment. I think the current trend in gimicks has taken away fron the sport of hunting. Before the late 20th century, there were millions of deer killed with home made bows and stone or basic metal broadheads. It still works today if applied properly. I have been bowhunting for 31 years and have taken over 150 deer with a bow, (128 with the same recurve I killed my first with). I shoot 2117arrows, 31 inches long, with 145 grain Bear Super Razorheads. They are heavy arrows and I have to sharpen the heads myself, but for all these years they have been doing a great job. My arrows go less than 200 feet a second but I've found that if you do you scouting properly, most shots will be under 20 yards, and at that range, speed is not a factor. The arrow gets to the target in 1/3 of a second. Even at that "slow" speed, almost all my double lung shots are 'pass thru' shots. One shot on a deer that was faceing me went in under the base of the neck and exited under the rectum, a length-wise pass thru! I love heavy arrows! Unless you shooting deer at 40, 50, 60 yards I don't think speed is much of a factor and even then a heavy arrow will go deeper then a light one. It's simply a matter of hitting your target.
