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.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
