Hungering arrow - Penetrating or devouring?

Which one will ultimately do more damage more often?

Pretty similar. Puncturing is more consistent, Devouring has the potential to do more.

I prefer Devouring, until I got the Teeth one... that one, combined with Sharpshooter is pretty boss. But then, Devouring and Sharpshooting is also sick.... hrmmmmmmm

Coming from a long line of theory crafting in WoW and a long time diablo 2 player, my rule of thumb on this is anything that can get you a higher max damage is gong to net you higher dps as a result in the end; Regardless of proc chance and what not. I will be switching to devouring as I use Puncturing atm for the 50% pierce. I'd rather have a 35% chance and double my damage a few times, ESPECIALLY, if you have increased crit damage.

I wish I could number crunch this but this is hardly the place nor time :P

Good luck, just experiment.
