Arrow weight for hunting hogs, deer and bear

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Hey Guys I’m looking for advice on setting up arrows for hunting hogs, deer and black bear. I’m shooting a Bear Super Kodiak 50 lb. My draw length is 28 inches. My current arrows are Victory Vforce 500, 4 inch feathers with brass inserts and 125gr points. Total arrow weight is 400 grains. They shoot / fly great, If I do my part I can keep my groups the size of a pie pan at 30 yards.

I’ve been doing a lot of research and reading Dr. Ed Ashbys recommendations on total arrow weight and FOC. I believe I should have a total arrow weight of 500 grains or more. I need advice on arrows, spine weight, broadheads and total arrow weight. Also should I use 4 or 5 inch feathers?

Thank you for any advice with my endeavor

Patrick

Is there an arrow available that at 27" that will weigh 250 grains? Better yet is there an arrow that can be built with a 100 grain point and weight 250 grains?

Help please…What weight head for my arrows?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

bear Kodiak recurve
50# (nominal draw weight written on bow)
60"amo
I am 6′ tall (don’t know draw length)
arrows:
.340 spine
32" long

Can someone at least give me my range of options? I was at the shop the other day and I was told I should go to a lighter spine, but some of the charts I’m reading like 3rivers archery are suggesting that I should go heavier if anything. I want to make these arrows work. I would like to go as heavy with the broadhead as possible for FOC and penetration. Can I go 200 grains?

How will I know if I’m underspined?

Arrow weight

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I’m shooting around #60 from my longbow using 27" cedars with a 125 gr head.
I haven’t really weighed my arrows but I’m guessing they aren’t even 400 gr.
When I shot compound I used the Easton FMJ’s that weighed in at the 450 gr range.
What’s the "norm" for a traditional hunting arrow weight for big game up to elk?
How can I get more weight? Carbons with tubes?

Minimum draw weight for deer?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

My girlfriend is just getting into hunting and she is using my youth bow. She wants to go out this weekend, or thursday evening perhaps, but I don’t know is her bow is shooting fast enough. It is a Diamond The Edge, she is pulling 24.5", and I do not know the draw weight at the moment. It is very light. I am worried about the speed because it seems super slow, too slow for an ethical kill.

What is considered to be the minimum? I hunt in Iowa and I do not believe there is a legal minimum.

Thanks!

400gr arrows enough or should I add weight tubes?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

My arrows finish out at about 40grains with tips and all. Should I add 5gr per inch weight tunes to gain a little more punch? I have not chronographed my bow yet.

Here are my specs:

*2013 Prairie Lonbows (Panther) 46# @ 30"

GT 3555 arrows at 30.5" with 125gr tips

Thoughts anyone?

Bow Storage Turning Down Weight

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

What do you guys think about turning down the weight on bows that aren’t shot much. My bows are mostly 57-60lbs. should i let them down if i only shoot them a couple times a year? I usually keep one bow for practice throughout the summer and don’t shoot the others much.
