My bows currently are 52# Bear KMag, 53# Shrew Classic Hunter, and #55 Osage selfbow. This year I shot plumb through a nice bull elk with the 53-pounder. With heavy arrows and EFOC I’d take it down to 50# no worries. A shoulder injury several years ago (either weight lifting or whitewater kayaking, or both) prompted me to drop down from 64#, which I’d shot for years. My age (39:P) has nothing to do with draw weight (so far). But since a fast bow in the 50-55 range is plenty for anything I’ll ever hunt, and I can shoot them often without shoulder pain if I’m careful, that’s where I am.
