I have to agree with Rich and thank you guys for the vote of confidence on light bow weight. I too shot heavy recurves (81 & 74 lbs) until I ruined my sholder by being too Macho. I am now working up to a 55 lb Bear TD. and expect to be successful by next hunting season. (I couldn’t draw the bow this season with all my cold weather gear on – good thing a deer didn’t walk out.) I don’t plan on hunting anything bigger that Boreal Whitetails and maybe an Elk but I’m glad to hear that you guys agree with my belief that it’s the edge on the broadhead that does the job.
