I shoot to 60. It's about the farthest I can get here in yard. It is fun & makes the closer shots seem easier. Plus I like watching the arrow drop in on the target lol

Yep...the arrow flight and delay from impact is awesome.

I typically start my practice sessions at 60 yards and work my way in to 20. For giggles i do stretch it out in my backyard and take a shot or two, every now and then, up to 120yds.

been starting at 40 moving up to 25 then finishing at 50 which is as much room as I have pretty cool tracking flight at 50.this is my third year shooting and bowhunting the long distance work seems to make my 35yd and in groups way tighter that's my comfortable max hunting yardage,so I like the long distane practice

We shoot at 100 yards quite a bit at the club . I shoot quite a bit at 80 yards , that is the farthest yardage for our field course . It definitely will show your flaws at that distance .

Shoot out to 100 all the time and when you step up to 50, the target looks like a ups truck. I got an elk hunt in about two months so I been at it hard.
