How far do you practice?

Recommended Posts

For the last 10 years, my max range and furthest pin has always been 40 yards.  I have just recently bought a new sight, and have started to push myself out when I practice.  In the last few weeks I have dialed in my 60 and 70 yard pins.  I would never take a shot at an animal at that range, but my method if thinking is If I can make 70 yards comfortable, then 40 will become my new 20 yard shot!

I practice out to 60yds with my hunting setup, but this is mainly so that those 30 and 40yd shots will be more like a walk in the park. The absolute farthest shot I've taken at a deer is 35yds and I much rather them 20yds and under. My goal is to have them walk within 10yds....that lets me know that my scouting is spot on. C'mon fall of 2015!

I typically shoot at 20 yards and less. This year I will become proficient out to 30 yards in preparation for my September moose hunt. Now I just gotta build my moose target...
