    lmao geeez finally thanks lovetohunt... OF COURSE I DONT WANT TO INTENTIALLALY BREAK THE SHOULDERS! Its just this year I made a bad shot on a doe from only 30 yards, yea i know a simple shot but I shot the doe got smoked!... Come to find out it just nailed her shoulder plate and came out like 10 yards away. After that I learned my lesson, I don't and will never ever try to harm a deer unless I plan to take it with a nice fast shot that will kill it clean and fast. After that., I was so worryed I screwed that doe up and wasted the harvest of fine backstrap and tenderloin. I don't aim for the shoulders just a bad experience. and if im going to get a nice bow for my money I want one strong enough to yea, if that ever happens again in my bow hunting career which I'm sure I will, I want to be comfortable knowing I might have still taken the deer with a bad shot. I guess I didn't mean BREAK, I meant peirce through or any other term for taking the deer with a bad shot. Its the first time its happened to me and I plan on never letting it happen again hopfully. So yea, I just want a bang for my buck $$$... something that can get the job done. So sorry for my misplaced words, I knew what I was talking about I just worded it wrong, but thanks lovetohunt, you knew what I was explaing. Thansk everyone for your help. I'm on the look out for a new bow as I write this. =]

      Your welcome.

      Also another thing that will greatly help is the brand of broadheads. Get good ones like Muzzy or G5 Montecs or other good brands if you don't already have them. A good sharp broadhead will help greatly with a shot on a shoulder blade.

        We understand that you want to break the shoulders and kill the deer all at once, but we're telling you that this can't be done with any normal bow. It would be great if you could, but this is something elk hunters do with .338's. The only shot to take with a bow is the lung (maybe heart too) shot behind the shoulders.

          I am a fan of the Fred Bear Lights Out - an be had at Huntersfriend.com for a pretty reasonable price as far as I am concerned. You can get either bare bow, or you can get a complete package (bow, 6 arrows, release, sight, quiver, case, field tips) for a little over 5 bills if memory serves me correctly.

            Skip going to your local dealer and look online for used bows. I bought a bow late last year for 1/2 what the guy paid for it and he only took it out twice. He just didn't like the way it shot (it's a Katera, don't know what there wasn't to like) so he wanted something else. There are just always guys out there with a lot of money who will drop thousands on a new bow every year and are always selling their older models. Demo a few bows and see what you like then go online. Hope this helps and happy hunting!

              Most importantly, spend the extra money on the bow. If you have some leftover then spend buy a good trail cam. I would rather have no cam than a cheap one though. I bought a cuddeback because I heard too many horror stories of the cheaper ones not working.
