I killed my first elk in Colorado in 1979 with a cheap 43 lb recurve. It was a mature cow and only went 20 yards after the hit. I don’t know the arrow weight, but it was one of those fiberglass arrows with a 145 gr broadhead – it was heavy. I have to admit, the 35 lb limit scares me less than the 200-300 gr arrow.
