Not many dangerous snakes in Canada Thank Christ, except the odd few Rattlers you may find in some places. Even these are considered "diet" rattle snakes I am told, as they don't pack near the amount of poison as some found in the USA. I honestly have yet to see one in all my travels. Still wouldn't want to test that theory by being bitten thought.

If you’re planning on making arrows better not have a compound bow. Compound makers tell you not to use wood arrows because they will split the arrows. When I was 20 I tried it and it did split the arrow and part of the arrow ran under the skin of my left arm but it could have been much worse.

i only own a composite bow. never liked the compund bow. too conplicated; if it gets messed up in the field, it's impossibel to fix. Plus, unless you're hunting rino, you don't need 60+ lbs of pull. a good, sharp head will enter a body just as easily with less force(talk about a double entendre).
