A lot of people practice out to distances far greater than they'd ever shoot at a deer. I only practice out to 40-45 yards because I have an old Martin Phantom bow from like 2003 and really not that much experience in bow hunting. In fact, I've never shot a deer with a bow. I really only have one full season bow hunting under my belt and the deer are few and far between (5ish deer per square mile) where I hunt. Anyway, I shoot sets of 4 arrows at a time and can consistently put those arrows within 4-6" of each other on the target at 30 yards with a self tuned bow (I've never even been in an archery shop before because archers where I live are few and far between like the deer). So 30 yards is the maximum distance I plan to shoot at a deer if the conditions are great. So what's the maximum distance you'd feel comfortable shooting at a deer and why?
