Would a 100gr G5 or the Muzzy 100 be best for moose in NB.(or would 125gr be better)
(out of a 60lb bow, using easton full metal jacket - 400 spine)
What would you consider your Max range from this combo (30-35yds)?
I have never taken a moose with my bow, so I am no expert on broadheads for them by no means. But I have read a lot on the subject, and based on my experience with deer I would say this.
I think that there probably isn't that much difference in a 100 gr head over a 125 gr one. Especially with today's fast bows. The heads you mentioned should do a good job providing they are shaving sharp and fly well enough from your bow set-up to go where you aim them. I also think that it is easier to get carbon arrows to fly well with the lighter 100 gr.
I have read of plenty of moose shot with spitfire expandables. And even though that is what I use for deer, they would not be my choice for moose.
I do think that 60 Lbs although entirely adequate for deer, is border-line light for moose in my opinion. It "will" get the job done with the proper rib shot. But I certainly wouldn't want a shot past the 30 yards you mentioned.
Even with 70 lbs, I would get that moose in just as close as I possibly could. I would prefer 20 yds….or better yet have him brush the arrow as he passes!! Another thing too think about for moose with a bow. Especially hunting from the ground, (I wouldn't want a tree stand shot angle on a moose) is that a rangefinder is a necessity.
My Tribute is a 60/70 lb and I have it set a 66 lbs for deer. I am thinking of getting another bow with 50/60 lbs limbs for deer in the future (easier to draw in cold weather). I could lower the poundage more, but I like to shoot my bows maxed out..(or close to) their top weight.
If I am lucky enough to get my moose tag this year, I would crank my bow back up to 70, just to get that extra penetration power.
The broad-head that I would use for moose is the Steel-Force Titanium Hellfire head. I took a buck with one years ago and they are a really tough solid head. And shaving sharp right out of the package!
Anyway.. that's my opinion on the subject. Others may differ.
