How many ... firearms does the average guy own? Why? Because you don't kill squirrels with your .375 H&H. There's a time and place for a .375 and nobody is debating that. There's no need for it in the deer woods though. There are much better options out there.Poachers kill a lot of Deer with a .22 Long Rifle bullet every year. Just because it CAN be done, doesn't make it the "logical choice" for every hunter to use during rifle deer season!! . And as "Dirt Fahmah" said,... "Also there are plenty of people shooting well under 400fps"
Personally, IF I was a millionaire, I wouldn't pay the kind of prices Ravin and Ten Point and some other are asking for their bows!! BUT....to each his own!
I think IT"S NUTS!!! The price of your BOW doesn't make YOU a better hunter!!
YES...I Know....I just pissed off a bunch of folks.🤬😂 And I know I'll get hate mail... BUT the truth is the truth!!😎
I don't care if you shoot the cheapest bow on the market or the most expensive!!!
Native Americans killed ELK and Buffalo with bows that probably didn't pass 100-150 fps!! With points on them measured in ounces...NOT grains!!😎

Now...If that high dollar, warp-speed bow drove itself out to the lease, did ALL the work on the lease, killed the deer, gutted it, skinned it, quartered it, and then processed it for me, I MIGHT think about spending that kind of money!!😂🤣
And yes, I said... MIGHT!!!😊
And NOT everyone hunts just whitetails!! Now...Why would you have 10 different arrow/broadhead combos that you have to re-sight every time you go hunt something other than a whitetail?? Pick one arrow and broadhead that will KILL everything you ever plan on hunting, and stick with it!!
That's All I'm saying....
I guess if you have a ton of money, and don't mind spending it, then be my guest! I know I cringe every time I buy new arrows. Quality arrows/bolts will run you on average probably a $100 or better for HALF a dozen, and those ain't the most expensive!!! Quality heads will run you $60-$70 bucks for 3. Not $19.95!!😝
I want mine to work everytime I let one fly!
And yes...I want it to kill the tree on the other side of the Deer!!🤪😜
Okay...I'll shut up...for now! 🤣 But this is what makes us a diverse community of folks who hunt. Each and everyone one of us is passionate about what we do, and how we go about it. No one is completely right, and no one is completely wrong. Each person brings his or her own experiences to bear.
Some of us have pursued game in more places than some have ever imagined. I was lucky as a young man. I got to hunt from Maine to Alaska and from Canada to Old Mexico.
Just wish I'd have made Africa. Thank GOD Texas is full of African and other exotic game these days!!😃
This original post was done to give you something to mull over before Deer season starts. NOT to criticize your choice of weaponary or methods used... although... it is fun to poke at folks!🤣
