After tearing my rotator cuff 2 weeks ago I still wanted to hunt so I dropped down to 40 lb Limbs and kilt this deer this morning .

Good for you! I've kilt several critters with bows in the 40# range. Okay... so, what kind of limbs are those? I've never heard of "Discover" limbs.

Draw shouder which for me wasn’t as bad. If I was left handed I’d be in trouble because no way could I lift the bow and hold it . I can draw and shoot one time the 40 lb bow.

Can it be fixed with pt, or gonna require surgery?

It is shot placement and sharpness that kills the deer. High poundage is not necessary.

The surgeon said that if I was a baseball player or worked all the time above my head I’d need surgery. PT now. I don’t shoot heavy poundage anyway. About 54 lbs but this 40 feels good. I got good penetration to the bone in the offside shoulder. I shoot close shots anyway

Good post Babysaph…..I have been using a #44@30 BW. Has no issues at all being plenty for deer. What Mt. William said is right on the money.

I put my bow on the scales. It is 36 lbs. Had I not killed that buck with it I would be afraid to use it even though I know people use them that weight. Needless to say my shots are going to be real close. I have given some fat does a pass this year.
