My girlfriend is shooting 42# and 26.5. Pretty dang slow. She shot her first deer thus last weekend. It was a dumb spike he still dropped 12 inches, turned 80 degrees and threw his *** in the arrows way. We found the deer piled up 50 yards away thankfully but we have to get more speed. He wasn't even on alert or looking nervous. Anyways to answer your original question, the shot was 20 yards and she's shooting a trusty 100gr thunderhead. The long sweeping blades seem to allow more penetration. Hit in the hunt quarter after he dropped and spun, the arrow reached his opposite side, didn't stick through but it was just under the skin. So 12-13 inches of penetration. I'm compemplating what to do to get the arrow delivered faster. Post what you decide
