I have a horton summit 150 have shot two deer and neither have been a pass throu. Should I be worrying? First doe hit a rib and bent about 4 inches in 2nd doe was hit in neck and hit the neck bone and stopped. Both deer dropped . I am also shooting swacker broad heads. Have I just not hit the magical spot or is the bow too weak?
My biggest worry is that my wife (when Iím dead) will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it.

If fishing is interfering with your business, give up your business

Hard to say without seeing it shot for me. I have a Horton and have never had a shot not pass thru.

I hunted with a summit for several years and killed better than twenty deer with it and all but one were pass thrus. But most of those were inside 20 yards too

IMO that bow does not shot fast enough for a big mechanical as a swacker

When i used that cross bow i want to say it was shooting like 240 ish fps ( i killed several with it) you want to use a slick trick mag 100 grain broadhead and you will be golden

these mechanical like rage and swacker and the ones i use excalibur x-act BH take a lot of speed to penetrate as a lot of energy is loss opening up the large blades my excalibur cross bow shoots 376 fps i can chrono it all day at this speed all day

Had one, great bow. Plenty of speed and pass through power. Don't worry about it. I hit one in her neck couple days ago and no pass through, broadhead stuck in spine too far to pull out. You have plenty of speed and energy, just go hunt.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.
