    I thought some of you might enjoy this. My son and I painted a monster on a pumpkin, and since it was time to get rid of it, naturally I thought I should shoot it with something.
    I was impressed with the penetration of a 40# recurve. I think one or two of those shots would have passed through had they not struck the block target they were sitting on. I have no doubt 40# would do the trick on a deer.
     
    Gooch and Drahts like this.

    Cool. Love the ol zwickey broadheads. Thought about getting some the other day and trying them out of my compound. They have killed many of deer over the years.

    They plane at higher speeds. I tried the black diamonds.

    A hunting friend of mine mentioned planing. They are pretty wide.
