    I shot from 50 yards over the weekend for the first time I did prity good. It felt great to shoot from that far. The first shot was a little nerve racking. I was relieved when I heard the arrow hit the bag. Thanks to all of you and your help with my shot and form. :hail:

    Nice shot! 50 and more it pretty good in my book but the more you do something, the better you'll get. I actually hit my block target from 70 using the level on the bottom of my sight. One shot, one hit, it's a walk off. Haven't tried again since. My normal ranges are 20, 30 and 40 for practice. Keep it up though!

    I didn't like posting it thought I was braging but it feals good to get better at any thing. I have gone through a lot trying to learn how to use a bow. I have come a long way.

    I just set up my HHA optimzer ultra and its dead on from 20-80 yards. I put my dad to shame at 60. We were shooting clay targets and I was busting them repeatedly within the first 2 shots. If I missed with the first one I was right next to it.

    Awesome bro! Wait until you go back to 70! It makes the 20-40 yard shots seem so much easier.

    I have read that the further you practice from the tighter you get up close. I was reluctant to shoot that far but as you can see from 40 I am shooting much better. I love this sight for all the help and support.
