You gotta admit though, a 700 grain arrow and large single bevel bladed broadhead would have increased the recovery odds of a certain shoulder shot buck that someone here shot and lost with a mid weight arrow and expandable broadhead this past season. *STIR STIR STIR* \:\)

The longer I spend time in the field, the more I learn. And I seem to be gravitating away from the light-mid weight hunting arrows in favor of the heavier ones. I hunted with Easton N-Fused Axis arrows this past season and really liked those; total weight is 403 grains. If I were to buy a shaft right now to pick for hunting this year and couldn't use the Axis N-Fused I already have, it would be the Full Metal Jackets.

Shot pacement is what kills an animal. A deer can be killed with only a field point if it is placed correctly. With that being said, Kentic energy is a key factor in penetration of the arrow. We use high poundage bows with light weight arrows at blazing fast speeds today and harvest large numbers of deer. Years ago before the compound bow came along, we used recuves and long bows that we could dang near outrun the arrow to the target. Yet with heavier arrows we still harvested deer. Yes, a 700 grain or heavier arrow with a large single blade will kill a deer. But so will a piece of flint rock and a home made stick and string. Its mostly about WHERE the shot is placed. Just my two cents worth, not that it means anything. LOL
