Under perfect conditions I put down 45 yards only because I have practiced from my stand at that distance with a slight wind and put all 4 arrows in the vitals everytime.. I practice this way so the closer shots come easier. Who knows someday old mossyhorns might stand at 45 yards and not come any closer and maybe the worlds will align and everything will grow calm and conditions will be perfect and I might decide to pull the trigger..

  I know what you mean. I can't remember where I saw it. What they were saying was you get the sight set at 20 yrds and it's on out to 35. I can't atest to that but it worked for me!

I used to practice alot more when I shot competitive archery and always had pins out to 60 for that rare perfect moment.  My farthest shot on a deer was a perfect scenario at 47.  I double lunged the him and heard him go down.  Now with limited practice I have limited ability.  I currently have pins for 15, 25, and 35.  I'm not trying to promote long shots however I do promote practice and self discipline.  I've been bowhunting and shooting competitvely for almost 20 years and theese are my personal limits.  Good Luck!!!

30 yards.  I can hit a 6 inch target consistantly out past 40 yards, but targets don't move and deer do, so better safe than sorry.

I would say you need to shoot your bow at the 35 yard range.  I shoot a pretty fast bow, 65 lb. draw, 100 grain tips, 350 arrows.  If i used my 20 yard pin out to 35, i would probably miss every deer at 35.  I actually have seperate pins for 0-20, 30 and 40 yards and a hand turn adjustment for yardage past that.

40 if the buck was one that I knew I would never see again. It would have to be perfect in every sense. Otherwise about 30 is my max comfortable shooting distance.
