    This will be the perfect shot for a buff with a bow.

    950gr + arrow out of 90# bow will have enough energy to punch through that overlapping rib bones.

    I have had a lot of guys arguing about using the new generation 70# bows on Cape Buff.

    My question to them is....

    Why would you want to spend a lot of money to hunt a Cape Buff and then be happy to shoot with the minimum pounds and have the PH kill your trophy with the rifle...

    Rather be over "gunned"....

    If you want to hunt buff with any thing less than 90# let me know as my 500 Jeff is always ready to do a bit of extra work...;)

    Hi Gerhard,
    Your are right, there canot be power enough for buffalo. But think about older hunters ore hunters with a handicap in the arm ore shoulder. I can't draw not more as 70#. But my bow is a speed bow and nearly so fast as on older 90# bow. Important is the momentum not the KE (Dr.Ashby). My 750 gn. arrow comes with 240 ft. and 0.780 Momentum

    And what's about the lot of stick bow hunters ? (Buff) The energy of there set up is explicit lower as mine.
