    Good question and one that deserves discussion...
    Mine are 20, 30, 40, 50, 60.

    The issue I have is that my shorter yardage pins are really close because my hunting bow is pretty fast and the sight window is pretty small..

    Post up everyone, this is potentially a good thread.

    For hunting what I used to do was set my 20 yard pin then start backing up
    A few yards until my group was roughly 6 inch’s lower and then set a pin
    At that range then backup some more until the group dropped again I would Do that until I got to 50 yards or so

    For hunting I have a single pin --- sighted in for 20 yrds. I found that when I am in the treestand I am able to use the same pin up to about 15 - 35 yards.

    When I used fixed pins for 3D... I sighted them in for 18 - 28 - 38 yards

    I use 20-30-40-50-60. For hunting I also use a rangefinder, so I set my hunting bows with that.
