I am thinking of getting a crossbow.
want to shoot with a scope but just use one "pin".
how far can you shoot your crossbow using one pin or line on a scope?

I use the same "pin" for 20 and 30yds.
Starts dropping after that.

30 yards will be about as far as you could go with 1 pin and not have to worry about being way too high at <30 yards.

No matter what type of archery equipment you choose, range to target ALWAYS has to be considered.

Its not what happens in life, but how you react to it that matters.

The only thing I ever shot with a crossbow was the coyote I called up during bow season.

He got to "about" 30 yards and I put the 3 dot scope on him.
All 3 dots were on him so I just pulled the trigger. \:D
