I'm considering an elk hunt, in Colorado, but I'm not sure whether to take my compound or my recurve. I shoot both very well, but I fear the longer yardages will not allow my recurve to be an effective weapon.
Has anyone here used their recurve to hunt elk? Do you just have to wait for the closer shot or is it possible to get a clean kill with a recurve at longer yardages?
I'd like to hear what bow poundages would be best and arrow weights.
I prefer cut-on-contact broadheads, like the Steel Force, so broadheads aren't a question for me.
Thank you, Bowhunter57
