James over here in Knoxville. Just bought a used Buck brand compound bow couple weeks ago, and have been trying it out. First time I ever shot a compound bow. I have the draw weight set at 50 lbs. and seems alot to pull for me, but have been told should be higher if I want to make say a 40 yard shot. Just wondering what to do, and any tips with bows or deer hunting with them would be welcomed. I have been hunting Forks of the River, Henderson Island and Buffalo Springs WMA's.
