    Yeah..that will work fine.. I'm guessing your a little over 400gr. total weight. you will pack plenty of punch behind that set-up. If I wasnt being so lazy I'd figure your KE..lol.. Biggest thing is to wait for a good broadside or slightly quartering away shot. Aim small miss small.

    Very good advice right there! The biggest mistake a lot of new elk hunters make is to not pick a spot. Elk are pretty big and a hit to about 85% of there body will not equal success with any bow. Pick a spot!
