Are single-pin sights limiting for deer hunting?

I'm new to archery and plan to buy my first bow soon. Whitetail deer hunting and informal target shooting are my two current interests.

I'm also researching accessories, including sights. One bow I recently shot had a single-pin HHA sight installed. The construction and simplicity of this sight got my attention.

Here's the question: is a single-pin sight adequate for most deer hunting scenarios? Somebody told me that the Bowtech Tribute I was checking out doesn't need more than a single pin because the bow is "fast" enough to shoot an arrow flat for 20-25 yeards or less. I can't imagine taking a shot any further than that.

Is the statement about the single-pin sight true, false or somewhere in between? I'm confused and would really appreciate your opinions.

I'm sure some people find the workable, but I prefer to have one pin for 20 yards, one for 30 and one for 40. Only had to use the 20 pin so far, but I like having the precison of other yardage points for a more precise shot. Seems to me having more pins helps reduce potential for error.
