Nice find sob.
I've only been using a bow since November so I'm a little behind this guy.

I wonder what pound strength he is using for a bow. I suppose weaker ones are still pretty deadly using broad heads or armor piercers.

It looks like a pretty light bow. My guess is 15-25lbs.
No doubt, with the right arrows, coupled with his extreme accuracy, he would be quite formidable with it.
Have watched this vid 3-4 times now...I wonder how many "takes" it took him to hit the other arrows, (and super small targets), mid-flight?
Watched Byron Ferguson shoot a quarter mid-air on "impossible shots" it took him about 50 shots to do it. THAT guy, (Byron Ferguson), is also pretty frickin amazing!

Good call knot. Definitely not a heavy draw weight.

Yeah it not a 70 pound bow. I thi k it is a 50 a d he is not pulling all the way back. Still he got through chain mail.

Yeah he probably took a lot of shots to hit the arrow mid air. But still he did it twice. Thus proveing it was not a fluke.

Vs zombies do you even need a 70 pound bow of death? They not bears. I mean sure the skull is hard. But not hard as steel.

Mine is a 40lb recurve. It'll do just fine for Zeds.

And meduim sized animals. Though keep your animal and Raider/zed arrows separate.

Yup, I'm agreeable to that. However, field points don't penetrate as well as you would think. I hit a rabbit broadside with a 45# one at close range. Little bugger ran off 60 yards up a hill and off into the woods not to be seen again. Longer thinner heads like bodkins(sp) points for zombies, broadheads for living critters.
