      Hi everyone

      i am from France ,and want to hunt European Deer (cerf elaphe in French)

      a good buck wheigted around 150 kg

      next year i have the chance to join a hunting group to hunt one or more ,but i have never hunt this biger game ,and i have a brain storm about the arrow and blade choice

      my bow was a DRYAD ORION longbow 47# @ 27″ and i use center shot 400 75g brass insert and magus stinger 125g and 4X4″ feather

      i think use lighter tube like VAP with around 300g on top for the blade

      and of course a good bare shaft tuning

      did you think this set up in enough for this game

      many thanks for your help

      Dominique 😀

      Hi Dom, well, I don’t have any experience with an animal that size, but I’ll try to stir the pot here to get you some more qualified responses. I think with the 300 up front you would be safe. I read that it might be on the bottom end of good, but folks hunted those deer with less foc. What’s fhe total weight of the arrow you plan to build?

      I believe the proper order of things for penetration is something like this; straight arrow flight, sharp blades, weight of arrow and then increased foc. Of course, accuracy should have been the first thing. Let us know how you make out. Best dwc
