    A good compound bow can start anywhere from $400 and go up into the thousands.
    The bow used in this video is probably in the $1000 and up range considering a pro archerer is shooting it like he has practiced with it before.
    Also, it’s hard to tell because I don’t know if this bow was purchased before or after paralell limb technology was invented.

    @yopoza I shot a deer with less than a 45 pound draw and the arrow passed through completely

    @XxXHuntress a deer is 40 pounds so 30 would easily do the job for you

    wel in that case… at average range that most of you guys shoot from tree stand would be like in between 10-25yards right? (sorry i wouldnt know, dont live in america or hunt from a stand) the MINIMUM i would go would be 50lbs. and that would have to be good broadside shots, no quartering to. 50lbs is not enough to bust through much bone. thats my opinion anyway

    @yopoza i think he was more worried about poundage than anything.

    The only problem I have with this is that you use a lot of official terms and I don’t know what half of them are. Besides that it’s a great video.

    @MegaBuckfever fricken any bow will do the job. they make bows for hunting, meaning hunting anything… not bows for specific species
