I don’t know the answer to your questions, but am quite certain you do not need 100# to kill a cape buffalo. I just got back from a trip to South Africa in August. On that trip, my buddy killed a cape buffalo with a 74# black widow and an 850ish grain arrow. He made a perfect shot, and the buffalo was dead in under a hundred yards!

I do believe that you should hunt with as much draw weight as you can shoot well though. Good luck wit it!

I would suggest a TOTALLY different bow.

My 100# 60 inch recurve is MUCH harder to pull than my 72 inch 115# longbow.....you need more length for a smoother pull due to leverage.

I also don't think you need 100#s....for buff 80# would be perfect to erase any doubts if it is a sound modern design.

I think Karen Campbell took her Asiatic buff with a 70# bow
