For hunting is a fast bow or a quiet bow more important to you. To me I will take a quiet bow over a fast one for hunting.
The fastest/quitest bow I have seen is a 2010 bowtech destroyer 340.There is a fella who shoots at our archery center and its one sweet machine.For hunting is a fast bow or a quiet bow more important to you. To me I will take a quiet bow over a fast one for hunting.
Considering the speed of sound is 1,126 ft/s, which is just over 4X your 280 ft/s, then the deer is gonna hear it long before your arrow gets to him. To put it in prospective your arrow hasn't got to 10 yards on a 40 yard shot before the deer hears the shot.I agree with archery nut i think that most bows are quiet enough, that arrow should be into him before he hears it under good circumstances, even if you bow is below 280 fps
At 30 yards, according to Software for Archers, my setup puts an arrow into the animal in .03 seconds. Given that the arrow is behind the 10 yard line at .01 seconds, it is still almost 1/3 of the way there. .02 seconds is not a lot of time to move, even if the deer were to spring at the moment of initial sound reaching it. I don't think it could move out of line of impact in .02 seconds.PS deer reaction time is 1/10th of a second, your arrow is still behind the 10 yard line
Yeah, that's a long way off target, 260 fps on an arrow is a realistic speed too.14.8" puts you completely off the deer.
