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.
