    Default Arrow weight

    Trying to get Ks_hope ready for hunting. She's got a 26" draw, shooting about 47 pounds. What would you all consider to be the minimum arrow weight for deer hunting? Was thinking in the 300 gr. range myself. Thanks for your input!

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    My Sister lives in Paola. I am shooting about the same draw weight with my Onza but at 29" so I shoot a 400 Spine Gold Tip XT Hunter at 29" with Muzzy 125 grn. Phantom with the bleeders pulled out. Total arrow weight is right at 390grns. I'd go with a little more weight if I were you, sharp 2 blade of your choice. Those can be some big deer.
