no ...because I practice with my deer target from my stands ...I can eye the distances...use to though and I suppose I put my scent cans at certain yrds that I can spot from...but in most part no
I use a rangefinder and range different landmarks when I get into the stand.
My dad does not have a rangefinder, he hunts mostly pines and IMO it is extremely difficult to judge distances in a pine plantation. I plan on spray painting different colors for different yardages on the pines early next spring.
His pins are green and red so I will use those colors to indicate the yardage and as an easy reference of which pin to use.
I'm thinking it should work good.

I'd love to be as precise as many of the other posts, but because I bounce around in my climber alot, it doesn't allow me to.
Luckilly most of the areas I hunt, aren't conducive for a shot past 30 yards, so exact distance isn't as critical as those hunting field edges/food plots.
