I shoot an old Bear Kodiak Compound (early 90's). I've got the bow maxxed out at 52 pounds according to the bow scale at my local pro shop. The drawlength according to the pro shop is also set to the shortest draw length capable on the bow at just around 28". Limbs are cranked down all the way. My first question is this: Assuming I was able to consistently hit vitals (boradside or quartering away) at 30 yards, is this bow capable of having enough downrange energy to be effective on a whitetail at this distance? From some previous observations at deer I've shot, I'm not sure...I am also shooting 2114 alum (I think I'd have to double check) with feathers with 100 gr broadhead. I keep my broadheads as sharp as I know how. I want to be sure my "self-imposed" limitations are realistic based on my equipment. Any of you older-bow shooters have any experience that will help me feel better about this and perhaps give insight on effective range? Thanks!
