    Everyone’s sight setting is going to be different some at the extreme close ranges and for the most part it’s the difference in your peep height in relation to the arrow you take these 2 and your arrow is in a flight pattern for the first 0 to 8 yards underneath your line of sight then the arrow finally crosses the line of sight.

    Very good info, Hunting or 3D on the big animals yes it probably doesn’t matter to much, but on small game or shooting turkey in the head it could be the difference between dinner and not.
    On the 3D range you work so hard at getting 12s at 20-30-40-50 it really hurts when you’re not prepared to take a 12 ring at 5 to 10 - those cost you the most as far as mistakes.

    20 yd pin held a little low. I practice this shot all the time for hunting. I took three does last year at less than 12 yds. They were all a little closer than I would like, but there weren't any other good trees in that area.
    Of all the things I lost I miss my mind the Most!?!?!?

    They should have been shot before getting that close

    I agree, however the way that perticular stand is setup,it has a thick cover trail the dumps out about 14 yds from the stand. You can see the deer well enough before they get to you, but don't have a shot until they pop out of that cover. Not unless they come from the trail on the otherside. In which case you can not see them until they are at 40yds and can't get a clean shot until about 35yds.

    I don't think everyone understands that all projectiles fallow a ballistic trajectory. If you could see the flight path of an arrow you would see an arch not a line that starts to drop.
