As far as you feel comfortable shooting at...I like to shoot long yardage while practicing, so it makes the closer shots while hunting automatic!!!:thumbs_up

for fun or hunting?

if you practice alot and feel your stuff is good enough to pass through a animal past 35 yards go right ahead. alot of people get animals at 60 yda.

i can hit really good out to 50-60 yards but for hunting ill stay around the 30 range.

In practice I like to shoot as far as it is safe...I like to start close 10yds, and mix it up, move back to 20, 30,40+ always ranging back and forth..
If you can find a hillside to put a target on, its fun to go back to 100 yards or even farther..
Those long distance shots show every bit of error you will make..
Once you start dialing them in at that range, and it does not take too long..
in a short time you will learn all about your bow and its trajectory.... its all good,
then the close shots become WAY easier. ;)
I practice that way with both my traditional bows and compounds
for hunting.. it a whole new ball game...
make it fun!
