    depending on your 10-20 yard drop....i would go 20-30-40-50-60, probably never shoot 60 yards but the technology is far good enough for a well placed arrow to killem dead.

    If you have the room, sight in your bottom pin for as far as you can and spend the majority of your time practicing long distance. When you shoot closer you will have the advantage of great form built up from long distance practice.

    Agree with both 20feet and P17, practice at the longer distances and it will make you more accurate at the closer targets :2thumbsup:

    I rarely shoot with 5 pins on my sight. Basically the only time I do it is when I'm going out west to hunt. I've been running 4 pins for years at 20, 30, 35, 40 and it has worked out great. My new 82nd Airborne shoots flat enough that I eliminated the 35 yd pin, but for most bows I think that is a good setup. 5 pins or more gets pretty cluttered and many of us aren't good enough to need that many pins any way. I do like the idea of sighting in that 5th pin way out there just for practice. Shooting at 60-70 yds makes those 30 yarders seem like chip shots.
     
  15. I usually set a 5 pin sight as four of the pins for say 20-50 or 10-40 yards and keep the last pin towards the bottom of the sight for say a "hail Mary" pin ...60-80 yards maybe.
    Now, I dont hunt at the 60-80 distance but, I like to do some practice sessions way out therer just to keep me on my toes.

    If I go to the range and shoot a real long distance first, the closer ones seem a lil easier after that.

    Most of todays bows are fast enough,,,a 5 yard increment will have your pins stacked so close together it will be hard to aim. You would just have a cluster of pins. Most of these quicker bows seem to have eliminated the need for a 10 yrd pin as well. 20 yrds and out at 10 yrd increments makes alot of sense.

    agree. For a hunting setup, I use 3 pins. 20,30,40. If you're shooting at 25 yds, split the pins & imagine there's a pin dead center between the 2
