Im new to the sport. I just got a used bow its a Parker Buck Hunter XP 28"draw @ 56# Im shooting easton stalker 2117 alum. arrows w 125 grain field points. was wondering what yall think of the bow. any other info will be greatly appreciated. To me it seems pretty descent. Mainly wondering if it is good to hunt with and be able to bring down a deer

Parker makes some good bows... Your rig will take down a deer, no problem... Just practice alot, and you will be fine...

Best of luck out there!!

My "OPINION" is that carbons will be your better choice... They are more durable, so when you miss the target or whatever, they won't be bent or broken (hopefully)... Also they will fly a little faster which will help you a little as far as judging distance...

Just my 2 cents

As far the weight of the broadhead or fieldpoint go, thats something that depends from one set up to another. What I mean by that is the weight of your broad head/field pt. will have a affect on the spine of the arrow.

If you have a local archery shop get with them and ask what might be best giving your set up. As you get more involved with archery these are things you can play around with in order to get a well tuned set up.
