I figure anyone shooting over 60lbs is either 1.old fashioned 2. showing off 3. Hunting Wildabeast
It seems like my old bow was a White Tail Hunter by Bear that was dialed in at 72#, if IIRC, and although I could shoot a nice tight pattern with it at 40 yards, there was a considerable drop at that range. I’d still punch arrows straight through the hay bails we were using for target practice, but I was surprised by how much the arrow dropped.
Lost track of that old bow, probably traded it for something I’ve sold or traded off again by now. Maybe I should get a good newer bow and pick up the sport again.
