    About 25 yards where I hunt is the longest shot I could take.

    It's real thick around here unless I hunt a field.
    Never buy reloads from a man named Stumpy, Lefty or Nub

    I got back from shooting a little while ago. I was drilling them right off the bat so I scooted back to 50 yds. and was drilling them. So I thought what the heck. I scooted back to 60 yds. and was putting them mostly in a circle about 5" across.

    I couldnt believe I was shooting that good so I scooted back to 70 and I had 3 arrows in about a 4" group. Two of them were almost touching but I was about a ft. high so after adjusting my sights I took 3 more shots.

    One right in the circle and two about an inch low of the circle. That is awesome for me. Prior to today I had only take like 3 shots over 50 yds. and none were that good.

    It was alot of fun. I will probly keep fooling about for fun though. I have found that some days it seems like I can hit almost anything and sometimes it seems like I cant hit anything.

    12 yards in my Government Quarters, but I got the base Archery range not even a mile from my place, it will go out to 60 yards but funding sucks so I am usually the one to buy the baled hay for backstops.
    Got an indoor 20 yard range about 15 miles away I try to do spots every once in a while.

    Bowtech- 82nd Airborne 28.5"/ 60lbs. & 325gr. = 327 FPS

    Usually 40 yds and closer but sometimes I'll back up to 60 or 70 when I feel like looking for arrows.

    Same for me. Except 60 is the farthest I try. I spend most of my time at 30.
    That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

    I usually dont shoot past 30 or 40 but practicing at the longer distances is making me more confident. I would probly take a longer hunting shot now.

    I don't practice any farther than 50. I shoot quite a bit between 20 and 40 yards, mostly because I can in my yard. 50 requires me to drive and make time for it. If I want to take a break from household chores I can just pick the bow off the ceiling hook, walk into the yard and shoot for 15-20 minutes. It's nice and it will spoil me if I ever have to move and don't have that kind of space.
