    After 2 months of shooting and a few new parts I’m feeling pretty confident out to 50. I’m shooting 60 quite regular and that’s I think is going to just be for fun. Shot this group tonight at 42. Now that my broadheads are tuned I am getting almost the same POI of field points. The lighted knock is a Slick Trick 100g the rest are field tips. Thanks to everyone who helped along the way.

    How far is too far...depends on a lot things. But I know it when I see it.

    Just to follow up on my reply to this from 8/11/2018.
    I installed my Black Gold (3) pin Ascent Verdict (moveable sight) and have been shooting much more often.
    Previous to this year I only had 20 and 30 yard pins.
    Now I am set for 20/30/40 yards am grouping within 2" and tomorrow I will apply the appropriate yardage tape to the gang adjustment slide.
    This tape is calibrated to 100 yards (although I want to just get to maybe 60 yards).
    My plan is to shoot distances that allow me to be confident to 40-45 yards delivering my Muzzy Trocar to the animal.

    Not to hijack the thread but has anyone seen or used a lens on their site to magnify the target??
    I have seen them in various powers but they are not cheap and I am not sure if all western states will allow??
    The 10 ring is getting hard to see at 40 yards

    Truth. In great conditions with time, my distance is much greater than with a couple seconds to make a decision and shot. In rushed conditions, I'd prefer to be within 40. In ideal conditions, I would shoot to 60 and slightly beyond. Practice has a lot to do with it and I also think equipment does as well. I think adjustable sights are a huge factor in being comfortable at longer distances.

    I’ve wondered the same thing on the lenses. I’m not sure how folks say thier shooting anything past 40 without some type of magnifying lense. I have 20-15 vision and have a hard time with .19 pins over the bullseye.

    I practice out to 60 yards on a regular basis, I'm confident out to 40 yards, my furthest treestand shot to date was a 45 yard shot on a whitetail.

    Practice to 100, but wouldn’t shoot at an animal that far.
    Furthest I’ve chose to shoot an animal was a bull at 56 and that’s about far enough for me. I have hit an antelope at 82, but it was just a follow up from my first shot that connected at 40.

    I have found that a very big elk can drastically reduce the distance I can effectively shoot.

    40 yards is about the maximum distance that Iím comfortable shooting at an animal with a broadhead. I can get pretty good groups with field tips up to 60 yards.
