    How many pounds of pull should a bow have to effectively use mechanical broadheads?

    What is your target? Any bow that will deliver your arrow to the target with accuracy is adequate. But, if you are hunting deer, check your state requirements, that will be the minimum. A lot of states state 40# is the minimum for deer, or at least it was when I was bowhunting. I preferred a 60# Ben Pearson compound back then, with a 29" draw. But I know several people who have harvested deer with a 40# bow without problems. If this isn't what you are looking for then I don't understand your question.
