I would like to know what is the best arrow weight to shoot plainsgame animals?
Gold tip pro hunter whit Gream reaper 100.Total 480 grains
I shot impala, warthog, black wildebeest, blue wildebeest.They did not run far.
Depending on exactly which plains game, i would think you would want arrow weights and broadheads (out of a compound) around 450-650.
I used arrows with a total wieght of 445 grains. My bow is set on 58 pounds. I blew through warthog and impala like butter. Drove the arrow into the oppsite shoulder bone on my kudu so deep the skinner said he couldnt get it out without pliers. Shot me zebra quartering away hard. Went through last rib, stomach, chest cavity with the point barley breaking the skin in front of far side shoulder.
