ya ever see shemane nugent?she hunts with a bow and does fine.you should have no trouble.find out the minimum poundage you need to legally hunt and go from there.or you can try a lower draw weight and build up.also you can do some upper body exercises to build up upper body strentgh.that guy who told you wouldnt be able to hunt is probably one of those macho jerks that shoots a bow thats way high in draw weight and brags about it
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
