The pens are at the edge of the city limits so they wanted to know if I would use my bow to kill it. I know this isn’t a hunt but before accepting their offer I want to be sure I can make a clean kill. I’d be using 28 1/2″ carbons with a 200 gr internal footing and a 150 gr magnus 1 with a 100 gr steel insert. This gives me a FOC of over 30% and an arrow weight of 675gr. I’d be shooting that out of my 55# longbow. So do you think that is an acceptable setup.

Perfect set-up…go for it
