I have yet to take any big game with any of my bows all small game at this point. Living in California and hunting public land is not as exciting as I see taking place in other states. I have hunted for 11 years and never drawn on a buck. I have taken one small pig but it was with compound before going trad.

I often see in the TBM 12 year old kids taking a nice buck it drives me nuts.

To update the numbers I went back and began to purposefully draw to 28 inches and pull through the draw rather than my typical dead release. My Tomahawk when from 140 fps to 155 fps and from 27 ft lbs to 33 ft lbs. My 65 pound bow jumped up to 172 fps.
