I’m in the market for a new bow. I want to be able to hunt everything from Whitetail to Elk to Moose to Buffalo. What is the best Mathews bow to cover this range of animals? Does anyone else hunt large game like Moose or Buffalo? What setup do you use?
I think just about any bow in the Mathews line up will do the trick. I hunt elk, deer, antelope and elk with my Helium. I have a 29inch draw, 67lbs., and have had complete pass throughs with 100grain rage chisel tips. If I didn’t already have the Helium I’d probably be looking at the new Chill. I had a chance to shoot it and loved it. I do love my Helium though. Go to your dealer and shoot several bows and let the bow choose you. You can’t go wrong with whatever you choose! Good luck!
http://www.backcountrybowhunting.com/articles/calc/ This back country calculator will point out what KE your setup and not just your bow will produce to be able to kill the biggest of North America’s beast. Most any of the new bows today convert more energy into the arrow than a bow 15 years ago and back then this would have been a question to really research for the right bow. Hope this all helps.
I agree with the above post, any of the bows in the hunting line up will get the job done. On heavier game arrow weight and type of broadhead are a real consideration. A sharp BH of any type will cleanly kill whitetails but for elk and especially buffalo a fixed or cut on contact head might give you an edge.
