    Default Can you make a ten yard shot?

    How would you shoot this dime size 12 ring at ten yards with your hunting bow?

    Not as easy as it looks. One would be amzed how many dont practice close shots.

    But I don't have a 10 yard pin. I guess I'd aim about 1.0 inches low, maybe a 3/4", with my 20

    I.m amazed some times at what yardages shooters think that they have to shoot on the short ones. I was telling a guy that on a 5 yd shot I use my 40 yd pin or setting. He said they is no way I'll shoot way over. Told him to try it. He said don't need to. I shoot turkeys out of a blind at 5 yds and just shoot the 20 low. I just said YEAH and left it at that.

    I just checked it with my bow and with a 20yd setting it hits 2 ins low. This can be diff. on some bows and with other shooter because of lenght of sight window and/or anchor. On deer or turkey etc. that may still keep it in the kill zone but on some of the smaller 3D targets that will get you an 8 instead of a 12. Best thing still for me is learn where my bow impacts at diff, yardages.

    I have been to some where they are even closer. That really messes people up. At 3 yds. or so you have to use your 30 yd. pin

    We had a 3 yard target at the R-100 last weekend. Played havic with alote of shooters. I aimed high with my 20 yard pin (4 inchs) and shot the 12. Most would think to aim low at 3 or 4 yards but it actully works the oppisite way that close.
    I never miss, my arrows always hit something

    That close I'd kick some dirt in it's face and jab it with a F/P between the eyes! Or maybe not.

    Default At 10yrds

    I hold right in the bottom of the 12 ring. I may raise just a half inch at the most.

    Reason I know this shot so well. I set my bows at ten yarsds first always.
