It took alot of time for me to workout enough to pull the upper 60 LBS and at 70#s for this past hunt at Wilderness.
On another site there is another thread on 80 plus poundage bowhunters and there were quit a few of them that spoke up why they liked pulling that much. Some hunted very big game or very dangerous game like water buffalo, African lion or large brown bears of Alaska. But they shoot the same bow year round at much smaller game as well.
I wonder how many we have here?
I know KE you can't have enough of. On the other hand alot of the TV show celebs pull less than 65 lbs. and they take game regularly. I know 45 lbs is enough for taking whitetail size game but 80 plus ought to knock it right off its feet.
For myself I will practise at a higher poundage and reduce it for the hunting season but some don't. It's similar to practise target shooting at 40, 50, and 60 yards and only really plan on shooting with in the 30 yard range at a deer.
