I find the 60lbs bow with 420gr arrows to be a nice money maker.
It generally drops any deer instantly and if you use the deer caller immediately afterwards the rest of the deer will turn and come back.
I kept doing this with a group of whitetails on Layton and same with Fallow Deer on Hirschfelden and I was getting 500-700 bucks per kill in just a matter of minutes.
I tried to drop a white tail using the shotgun with buckshot though... it was a perfect broadside shot at the lungs from 15m and the deer ran away from it. If I had used a bow it would have been instant-drop.
I'm honestly surprised how bad the firearms are compared to the bow. A full blast with buckshot at 15m on broadside should have slammed that deer to the ground.
Tried using a .357 yesterday... had to shoot a whitetail deer 3 times from 25m to kill it.
Why are all the firearms so weak? o.O
Now I rely almost exclusively on the bow and the only rifle I use is the 22LR for popping bunnies. The other rifles are just too unreliable for me to bother with them.
