My nine year old brother will be bowhunting this fall with and I need opinions on hunting arrows and broadheads.
He will be shooting 35lbs/ 21 in DL, but I need opinions on the optimum arrow weight for his set up to maximize penetration. When I first started the process of finding him the perfect hunting arrow I was under the impression that I would need to keep his arrow weight around 500 grains to get the best penetration, but several have told me arrow weight is relative to draw weight and that 315-365 grains would be a good choice and right now he is shooting 23" Maxima Hunters with 4 in feathers and 175 grains of tip weight for about 370-380 grain arrows and around 20% foc.
Another issue is broadheads, I know a COC 2 blade would penetrate the best but the blood trails would be tough to follow, so what do you guys think about Wensel Woodsman 3 blades for a low poundage rig?
Dillon (my brother) is pumped about bowhunting and is shooting his Trykon Jr really, really well. He says thanks for all replies!
