    For years I have been a 3 pin shooter. That is just the way I learned and have kept it that way. But after a trip to the 3d range yesterday i did something that i have been wanting to do for a couple of years. I removed my 30 yard pin and i only have a 20 and a 40. I am thinking this will clear up my shot picture. How many pins do yall shoot?

    Back in the day, one pin , 0 to 30 yards, knew where to hold. Over 30 , pass. Today, no sights (stickbows) anything 0 to 20-25 .

    Single pin. I'm only shooting out to 30 yrds max for whitetails. I like the simplicity of it.

    just one, with 2 dots. Spott Hogg Fast Eddie.
    If you want a less cluttered sight picture and don't want to go with a slider; check out the Trophy Ridge line of vertical pins. Shot them for years and loved them.

    All of them...actually 5. If I was only hunting the woods for whitetail I'd probably shoot 3 but when I go out west the other two are necessary for me.

    Three. 10, 20, 30. No plans to change but in the last three seasons the only pin I've used is the 20 and all in the boilerroom.

    1 pin. In the past ive used a vertical 3 pin. I can probably count on one hand how many arrows ive shot using horizontal pins.
