I’m looking for what you used for your trip. I’m booked for a trip the last week of July and I’ve told them I’m only showing up with a bow.

Tom Miranda used a 90 plus pound Mathews.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Check the country you are hunting, some I think have minimum draw weight set for them and I would want a heavy weight forward design arrow. I have read some good reports of Easton FMJ Dangerous game arrows working well on them. Never hunted them myself and if I did it would be with a rifle. My days of 80lb bows are behind me now. Definitely not an animal to skimp on the broadheads either.

I would check with the PH on recommendations.

Get on a couple of archery centric sites and find out what people who actually went have used. As I recall it ends up being a lot of somewhere around 900 grain arrows, and bow weights from 70 to 90 lb. But once again like most people that are going to try to give you an answer I haven't been there and done that LOL. Find people that have and get the information you need, don't take the word of a bunch of people like me who've never done it. Good luck

Here's another useless recommendation. If they can't climb trees and I'm betting they can't, I'd climb one before the shot. The thicker and higher the better. But, just like RJH1, I ain't been there and I ain't done that.
