When is it too much for an individual? I am by no means a macho man that needs to draw 80lbs to feel like a tough guy. I do, however, wish to draw as much as possible for the simple fact that it MAY help out if I make a range estimation error.
My bow goes from 55-70lbs. At the minimum setting I can shoot all day and not really get tired. I have been adding a quarter turn here and there to build "bow strength" but I think I have it a plateau. I am only good for about 12 shots and then I start to feel my "old man twinge" in my shoulder sockets and my form suffers. I do not want to injure myself or learn bad habits so I stop.
My concern is that if I'm hunting and got a case of buck fever, am I going to be able to draw this baby and make a shot? Am I better off keeping the draw weight low?
