Default How far will you shoot?

I will personally shoot out to 50 yards. But it has to be a perfect scenerio. No wind, wide open, and game has to have no idea im there.

I intend to be comfortable out to those distances this year...although most of my shots end up being 20-25....if they're coming my way, let 'em keep coming!

I practice at 40 and 50 yards all the time when I shoot.I don't think I would try a shot over 50 on anything.

I will practice out to 60 maybe 70yds. Of course it depends on the scenario in the woods for me to take a shot like that. I NY it is very rare you get a shot that long most of my shots ar up tp 35 yds. I find the futher out I practice shooting at improves my shorter shots.

depends on what you are hunting and the situation, I practice to 80 every now and then and consistently to 60 however I don't think I'd shoot beyond 50 at a whitetail and even that is pushing it for me. But put a big ole' moose in front of me at 60 - 70 yds under ideal conditions......it would be hard to hold off!
