My Girlfriend just took up traditional archery and wants go deer hunting with her recurve pulling 35# at her draw length. Here in Minnesota, that is a legal weight. I’m just not convinced that draw weight is actually enough. Does anyone know it ethically kill a deer? If so on what equipment?

SAM killed a deer peeking through the brush where he short-drew a 40# bow, was likely only drawing 28# or so.....seems like it passed through, too.
SAM correct anything I lied about, please?
SHARP broadheads and 35 pounds - shot placed well - within reasonably close distance - will kill a deer.
