Post count: 107

I am working on an EFOC set up because in a shot I would rather err towards the shoulder than the liver. I would prefer a quartering away into the vitals behind the shoulder shot but that doesnt always work out and of course things go wrong beyond our control. What I wrestle with is the fact we never know for sure until the deer is hit. I am narrowing this down to Carbon Express Heritage 250 arrow, 100gr brass insert,250 gr Abowyer brown bear including insert. If I can tune my bow to shoot this it should penetrate both shoulders and give a pass through shot according to “the reports”, but I wont personally know till the arrow hits the deer and I see for myself. We all hate wounded lost deer and my goal is to minimize this when everything goes wrong.
