Thanks I took him in 2 ft of snow and stalked for well over a hour. I hunt completley traditional. Well pre 1830 clothing tent equipment and all.

If you choose the 15 pounds, you're sacrificing feet-per-second for 2.5 pounds... It's worth it - to me - to have a higher poundage but YMMV

The point of higher poundage is not for a harder hit on bigger game, it's for a faster traveling arrow. With 2-3 feet per second per draw pound, it adds up fast.
Better technology makes for a greater amount of FPS per pound, and that is equally contingent on your arrow composition. So regardless of anything, a higher poundage will always equal a greater FPS, and a greater FPS is always a deadlier shot

In other words, the lower poundage, the better chance you have for a deer ducking your shot.

That's why I shoot 70#
??? Faster is better becouse the faster the arrow an higher the gpi u get higher downrange ke thats what equals quick clean blood sprayin kills, yes I love bowhuntin

I bought a Diamond bow last year. I am not a hunter but it's very accurate in my opinion. It's fun to shoot and reliable and has reusable ammo. I can't think of anything negative to say about it.

Also your going to get a work out if your new to it, even compound bows are not as easy as pulling a 4lb trigger.

Anyone try the Rage expandable broadheads yet? I never liked the idea but I guess these are better than the expandables of years ago, they have 2 blade and 3 bladers, the 2 blades are over 2" cut and the 3 bladers are 1.75" cut. From what my friends tell me they really blow a hole in a deer, some guys say it looks like you blasted em with a slug or something.

Didn't the Indians shoot bows and arrows? Didn't we win? Why go back? I joke of course.
