    HI
    I shoot a 35lb 27" turkish recurve bow (built by Pierre De Wet) with 350gr arrows .Iwas wondering if this is suitable for small to medium sized antelope hunting?

    At least 40-45 and up.
    A razor sharp broadhead, and I would go no less than a 600 grain arrow with a well tuned bow . Forrest

    mohamed ...Welcome to AH . Most archers will agree 35 lbs is to light ... here in Ontario minimum is 40 lbs for Whitetail deer .
