I didnt vote b/c this year im going to be packing slick tricks and rages that worked very well for me last year. I will probably be shooting in the 280 range though b/c that is where im really comfortable at! Unless im shooting a speed bow, 280 is FAST imho. The deer dont stand a chance 90+ percent of the time when i zing an arrow at them at those speeds. Last year I had one bow at 270, and one at 310 and my best placedshot was made with the "slow bow" (bowtech general)lol! She didnt stand a chance

Well, I didn't vote in the pole because it only lets me make one choice and I have both trad and compound setups..... which shoot the same 540gr. arrow with 125 gr. b-52's.... trad-208-210fps..... compound.....308-310fps.

Jeff Basham Sux even more...[8D]





I used mechanicals last year and I'd have the guess I was shooting in the 251-279 range although I didn't chrono it.




Love ya Bro!

Rage 2 blade @ 287 fps.
Added 100 grain inserts this year so I am down some from this figure.

I voted for- 'I dont know/or care'

because... I dont. When I place my arrow where I need to place it on an animal, it expires.

I shoot Rocky Mountain Snypers at, probably, around 280fps. I'd take a quiet bow over a fast one, ANY-DAY..

I think people put WAY to much emphasis on their hunting set-ups, speed, technical arrow junk, broadhead this, broadhead that.

Find an arrow thatflies realatively straight, a broadhead that is pretty sharp and works decently with your arrow and go hunting.

Thats what I do and I have no issues. People complicate archery hunting way too much.
