KINETIC ENERGY CALCULATOR


 

Arrow
Weight
(grains)
Velocity
(feet/sec)
Energy
(ft-lbs)
Use the calculator at the left to determine your arrows kinetic energy.  We have put three sets there to compare variables.

What amount of energy is needed to hunt:

  • Small game- 20 to 30 ft-lbs is sufficient.  Some states may have a minimum requirement.  
  • Deer- For whitetail, mule deer, black tail and the like it is recommended to have at least 40 ft-lbs.  Certainly a well placed arrow with slightly less than that may do the job.
  • Bear - We would recommend at least 50 ft-lbs of energy for black bear and brown bear.
  • Elk @ Caribou- 50 ft-lbs or more would be recommended for this type of game.  Mostly because the shots may be at further distances.
