    Hi

    I would like to know if my equipment is fine for large plains game.

    MY EQUIPMENT:
    Bow : Diamond Razor Edge
    Arrow : Easton FMJ 340 500 grains
    Speed : 210 FPS
    KE : 47ke

    I would also like a list of what plains game animals I can harvest with my bow.

    Replies will really be appreciated

    Cheers
    Dox

    Dox,

    What is your draw length and what pounds are the bow set at.

    I am expecting a lot more speed out of the Razor edge but it depends on the answers...

    Add a quality cut on impact broadhead to your heavy arrows and you are good to go for any plains game.

    I shot kudu, gemsbok, zebra, impala and warthogs with my bow. I had no problem with penetration on the larger animals.

    I shot a matthews switchback set at 58 pounds with 450 grain arrows. Montec broadheads.

    Very important ! Make sure your arrows fly straight and that your shot placement is flawless. Keep hunting distances to less than 25 y if possible. Make sure your Bow is quiet. Good luck.
