I was out shooting my bow just a minuete ago and I normally practice between 0 and 40 yds,as i have a 20 30 and 40 yd pins on my bow.But just out of fun i started shooting at 50 and 60 yds.After shooting at thos distances,i moved it back to 25 and dang target felt like it was as big as a house.I shot until my peep site tubing broke! Luckily it only broke about an quarter of an inch and was just long enough to put back on.I'll hunt with it this evening but im gonna have a new one put on it in the morning.Any way what distances do you guys practice at??

I will generally practice a lot at 50 yards knowing I will not ever take that shot.......It makes those 30 and 40 yard shots a lot easier.

One pin for out to ALMOST 30 yards.
One for 40.
One for 50.
One for 60.
One for 80.

You are right and exactly the reason I started doing it. You shoot where you can hold "groups" out to 60 and even 80 yards then shoot a 25 yard shot it is absolutely amazing how "easy" it seems.

I shoot one pin, and I practice at 25 yards, also known as "the farthest corner to corner shot I can take in my own back yard!
