    Naa, your doing the right thing by keeping it on the low side as a beginning bowhunter. Once your dialed in, all you want to do is shoot shoot and shoot. There are lots of broadhead/ arrow options out there that make a 60# bow just as lethal as a 70# bow.

    If you're shooting accurately you don't need to shoot 70lbs. Most new bows are very efficient and will get the job down with no problems.

    There is no need to shoot a 70lb DW with the bows today. I shoot at 61lb and it will kill anything a 70lb bow will. Shoot what is most comfortable for you. If it's a 90lb bow great, if it's a 50lb bow great.

    Shoot what is comfortable in a variety of situations, sitting, kneeling, standing on an incline etc..... As this will be hunting situations.

    My 2011 setup:
    Bowtech destroyer 340 @ 27.5 & 61
    Spott Hogg Real Deal
    QAD ultra rest
    Easton ST Axis 400s
    G5 montec 125gr
