well I dont have the experience that most do but I'm gonna shoot 47 or so pounds at my draw length. Reason being is I'm gonna shoot carbon arrows and they are gonna weigh around 450-475 grains or so. I wanna stay around 9 or 10 grains per pound of arrow weight.

48# @ 28. All my bows are in this range. My next custom bow I order will be 43# and at my draw 29.5 should put me at 45-46#. I would not hesitate to hunt whitetail with this setup. Sharp Broadhead and put it where your lookin, no problems.

Only ever shot one Whitetail,their not a common spieces here and their difficult to access as well.
But I got an offer I couldn't refuse last year, and got lucky with my 50lb recurve.
After the shot I felt like I could of shot her with a 30lb bow,,she just didn't slow that arrow down at all really.
530g Carbon express,125g green Fred Bear Razorhead,3x4" fluro yellow feathers.
Shot distance of 15 yards,travel after hit, 30 yards .

I'm shooting a 40# recurve over drawn 2.5 inches to about 46#.32 inch carbon maxx arrows tipped with 145 grain Bear Razorheads for a total arrow weight of about 460-470 grains. Haven't shot big game with it yet but I plan on using it for both deer and bear this fall. Our regulations call for no less than 40# @ 26 inches for deer and bear so I figure if the law is ok with it so am I.
