You don't seem to realize that bowhunting is not about knockdown power and tons of kinetic energy. Your Cheetah at it's present specs is capable of taking down anything in north america and most of Africa.
I can assure you that over the last 35 years I have taken many deer sized game with bow/arrow combinations that produced speeds of way less than the bows of today, getting complete pass throughs along the way. The only thing stopping me from going after larger game was my economic conditions and family responsibilities. I'm talking about bows that propelled an arrow in the 200 fps range or less, and those were pretty fast for their time.
The only thing that can stop you from going after larger game is your own confidence. The equipment is capable of the job. All you need to do is choose a properly spined arrow for the poundage/draw length, tune it well, shoot it well, and get to hunting.
I agree that some of the bows with the MPro cam are not the fastest, but that is not supposed to be a fast cam. I understand that you got what you could afford. That is not an issue here. But adding poundage isn't going to add much to the equation either. Nor are you going to find any better bows for the money you spent on the Cheetah.
There are a lot of game the size of elk and moose shot each year with recurves and long bows pulling only 55 pounds and producing about half the kinetic energy that your equipment is doing, and a lot of them with pass throughs.
From a personal standpoint I've shot a lot of setups that produced less than 40 ft/lbs of energy with complete confidence. I have physical limitations and accept that. But I hunt with complete confidence knowing that, for deer sized game anyway, my 47# FireCat with a 306gr arrow can do the job.
Having a 2009 Moab and knowing what speed I get out of that I would agree that the numbers do seem a bit inflated, though. Even so were I to hunt with it I certainly know that it's still more bow than I shot 35 years ago and that kinetic energy has never entered into my mind. I just put them together and go have fun. Try to relax and do the same.
