Is there anyway to know if your arrow is penatrating enough? I am shooting good groups, and seem to have my bow tuned right.
When it is his day to die, the hunted chooses the hunter and the circumstances of his death. His character in this world is reflected in the character of the hunter who escorts him to the next.

There are a lot of variables. Field tips or broadheads, kind of target, distance, draw weight and I am sure a few others I am missing right now.

I know when I shoot at the Block 4X4 I get different penetration based on placement and if I shot in the same place. One spot goes almost all the way through, another only about 6-8 inches of penetration.

It depends on your draw weight , arrow weight ,arrow speed , broadhead type, and how well your arrows are flying with broadheads . THe KE formula is often used , but downrange momentum is very important as well .
