    Any bow that has a competant bowhunter pulling the string.

    A PSE nova jr with fiberglass arrows and smooth points.. Knock em dead everytime... Just joking around... If it shoots an arrow at 240fps or better and the archer is competant.. any bow.

    The most important thing is to fire at least two arrows at a time.

    Also, a good crossbow can allow for accurate follow-up shots.

    I second the didnt notice the crossbow comment. But a good bow is one that is tuned and definately the archer behind the string.

    Marine Hawk I have seen footage of Howard Hill shooting three arrows at once. All three hit the ballons they were intended for!

    Gogoalie that would be a Ciroballista, a ballista that can be carried by two people. Ballistas were made as big as 50 feet high, some shot stones over 500 pounds, others darts as tall as a man.

    Uh, oh, this could start the old speed vs weight arguement

    I picked mine up after collecting dust for a few years (used to chase whitetails alot) I switched up my arrows to a 2117 for stiffness and weight and bumped up to 125 grain snuffer (stainless ones). It's a 12-15 year old Jennings with a long axle to axle for finger shooting and maybe I've got 200 fps....but the softball groups at 40 make me smile. Definitely keeping it to 40 yards or less and straight broadside (but that's probably a good idea for even a 300 fps bow.)
