Back when i used to tornament shoot all the time we would practice at 100 yards for cokes with my buddies. Let me tell you when u shoot it alot u better be able to hit pretty close if bragging rights is on the line.

I think long distance practice is great for working on your form.

I've been shooting the 60 yard target almost exclusively at the new archery range in Franklin.

I like to shoot at 60 in practice and end up at 20 to make myself feel good! \:\)

I like shooting at the Hendersonville range and it goes to 50 yds. I thought 50 yards was long enough...
I might have to try a little bit further this year since people are doing 80+ yds

I shoot out to the length of my practice range at 50 yards to work on form , but for hunting practice , I practice awkward shot angles from elevated platforms at unknown yardages and only shooting one arrow at each target . This is much more realistic hunting practice .
Deer don't stand still for groups , and most of my shots are at awkward , downward angles , less than 30 yards , through narrow openings in the tree limbs . It makes a huge difference in your hunting shots , and is much more difficult than you would think .
