Hey there from a bowhunter fiendly South Africa!
Very glad to see allot of the same interrests on the forum!
I am also a avid Bowhunter for about 9 years now and shot eveything from a pse vengeance,hoyt alphamax,mathews fx,bowtech tomcat,bowtech allegiance(Really like the bowtech cause they perform as advertised and smooth like college girl's ***),and finally found a setup now with a good thump in it....
Bowtech 82nd airborne and some trophy taker arrows,spot hog sight,limb driver vapor trail,and AWESOME RAGE 2 BLADES!runnin 75lbs draw weight 316 fps with a 455 grain arrow about 101 kinetic foot pounds........enough to stop a tank!
I've shot alot of animals and some decent sized stuff (eland ,kudu,hartebeast,oryx etc),and can honestly tell you to let a arrow fly on that bear with atleast
60lb draw and 350+ grains on the arrow cause the predator type animals like youre bears and lions cheetahs and leopards over here are deffinitly not as big and hard boned as the stuff like for instance youre elks and bison which need a far stronger and efficient setup atleast 85 + foot pounds!BUT REALLY BE SURE OF YOURE SETUP AND CONFIDENCE IN IT CAUSE **** GETS REAL WHEN THAT ARROW HITS THE *** ON A BIG GAME ANIMAL,AND YOU WONT END UP WITH WIINY THE POO BEAR!
heres a pic of me and this years nicest harvest..
