if you have the time I would go 5 yards intervals... Or use one of the premade tapes on the market.

Another trick, after you have your yardages set use a piece of clear tape over the marks to seal out the elements.

I use the Summit Hot Dot Sight in pendulum mode so the one pin automatically adjusts for the deer range. It has options to also light up in several fixed pin modes. I seem to do real well with the one pin pendulum deal.

depending on how fast your bow shoots 5 yd increments might get a little busy and could confuse you in the heat of the moment.

I shoot that exact sight right now and my first mark is 20 followed by 30,40,50,60. I put a little line with the number next to it so you don't have to count lines.

Also, the sight has vertical adjustment on the scope mount. this allows you to gain room on your sight tape if you need to, like if your adjustment needle is high enough that you only have room for say a 20 and 30, you can move your scope down and that will give you room for more yardage. Just make sure you check arrow clearance before shooting to make sure the arrow doesn't hit your sight.

good luck!!
