    Any input regarding bowhunting for Gemsbok? Obviously as everyone has stated, placement is key and even more so with an arrow. But what about the arrow construction and broadhead. I'll probably use my crossbow for this species and I'm throwing 460gr @ 320fps for just over 100ft-lbs of energy. 2-blade cut on contact broadhead (just over 1.5" wide).
    Any anecdotal advice?

    I think you have it covered, a well placed shot and the gemsbok won't go far. They taste great! Have fun!

    Your set up is more than enough, you'll shoot clear through and then some if you don't hit heavy bone. Good luck, I shot mine with a 520 grain arrow at 225 Fps and shot through, he traveled about 100 yards.
