My 13 year old son shot his first deer this year pulling just over 40# . Shot placement is more important than pulling alot of weight but with lighter draw weight judging distance becomes much more important . Happy hunting
Thanks for all your replies, I’m going to have to take a trip to a pro shop and have them help me select a new bow because I’ve been just have had nothing but problems with my bow and I have had even more problems with my sights. I have not been able to find a bowsight I could get to work for me, at one point I gave up the sights and tried to learn to shoot barebow. I don’t deny that it works, shooting barebow, but even with 2,400 hours devoted to it, I can’t get very consistent. Maybe someday I will try it again when I have shot more animals and have more bowhunting experience but I’m mostly concerned with being successful as a hunter than attempt to possess a bad #$% skill, I’m not legolas after all. I think I will try a single-pin sight because it seems they’re easier to set up and I hunt in thick brush most of the time anyway. When go to hunt mule deer, I’ll have to adjust but I’ve got to fix this problem first.
I find this extremely odd, since I have not found a bow sight that I couldn’t make work, with some fudging around!. It sounds to me like you have some form issues. Is your anchor point consistent? Are you doing the same thing every time to insure that your shots come from the same setup? I agree with jaymiller, this kind of inconsistency does not come from equipment alone.
It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.
