    Killed my second deer ever with a now at 43 yards. I used to practice out to 100 yards just for fun, this was before I discovered a lot of things in life and had a lot more time to shoot. Nowadays I don't shoot as much and won't shoot at a deer past 35 yards in a perfect situation.

    Why set a max for your practice range?

    I regularly practice out to 100. Furthest hunting shot was 44.

    Longest shot was 55 on a black bear, i always try to get as close to the game i hunt, but that was not possible in the situation there, i am comfortable at shootin out to 60 yrs, and practise out to about 100.

    It is my first shot during practice and I regularly practice 90 yds. My longest kill shot was 79 yds on a spot and stalk antelope. I average about 100 arrows a day during the off season and 50 during.

    44 yards on an antelope. For me, it's about how close, not how far.

    For me it is 60 yards in practice. Don't think I'd take a shot on a deer past 30 yards. ( I'm a newb)
