    Alright, I know everyone has their own little method for judging yardages for 3-D season so what is your method. Give up your secrets and share for us all.

    I try to find an object at 20 yards and go off of that. I feel pretty confident at finding a tree or something that is close to 20 yards and try to judge how far the target is from that. This works most of the time but I wish I could judge better.
