Looks good to me . I'm assuming that you are shooting at separate dots . ;\)



same here. Looks like you did just fine.


I was shooting at the x in each of the 5 different spots,,I can`t afford to shoot twice at the same dot..I geussed 35 and shot all 5 arrows,,

I am used to lining up one pin that will hit the circle anywhere from here to about 24-25 yards and then holding up for shots to 30,,I am trying to get out to 35 but I don`t know,,how many of those 5 misguises would have killed a deer

every shot was a dead deer. If you hunt from a treestand, the shots will be angled down, making it even better. You are ready.

Every shot would have killed a deer, just keep practicing at different yardages. I have never needed a rangefinder and I shoot out to 70 yards.The reason I don't need one is because I have shot enough to estimate the yardage upon sight.You will be able to do the same thing if you consistently practice.

I don't use a rangefinder either . I can estimate yardage within a yard or two out to 50 yards . Judging yardage is becoming a lost art as hunters rely on rangefinders too much .
I think practicing judging yardage is as important as shooting your bow .

I can get within 25 yards at 500 easier than I could 2 at 50,,I`m gonna hunt with the three pins this year but I aint planning on shooting past 30 yards,,I can hold with the 25 yard pin and be in the zone at 30,,,

first pin good to 22,,second pin good from 23-30 on a vitals sized taret..

I just put a single fixed pin Apex Gear sight on my new PSE . I got it dialed in at 30 yards , and hold a little lower at closer yardages and a little high at 35 yards . I try to keep my shots under 35 yards when hunting , so one pin is all I need .
