I read with intense interest most of your printed research work and I feel the bowhunting world owes you a debt of gratitude for your thorough insights. I agree that heavy, two fixed – bladed solid broadhead equipped arrows will deliver enough force to kill any game animal and that FOC is a factor. However, a 41 pound bow delivering a 650-700 grain arrow has got me a little mystified. Can that weight of a bow actually send an arrow of that weight with what we would call a smooth arrow flight, enough to effect a proper placement and penetration?
