What are you hunting>? Really the highest poundage you can stand to pull back in your case. 45 pounds in most states is the minimum I believe. Try to work out with some weights if your having trouble at 50lbs. A couple of weeks with some small dumbells and push ups will really make a difference.
Hi think i might have posted earlier to wrong place. Ill post here. Im a bowhunter in alberta canada. My solocam is 60 pounds max and i choose that weight so im only holding around 27 pounds at full draw. In alberta the min pound for bows is 40 pounds and thats enough to cut into a moose. Hope this helps
i shoot expandables now and i have taken down a deer.
I thought you were saying that you were lowering the poundage on your bow which would lead me to think that you didn't know that expandables and low poundage bows are not good matches. They are not the best combo, but more power to ya.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
