I've read alot where people have different view points about how long your shots should or should not be and the "ethical" view points from everyone. For myself, if my nerves would stay calm like they do when shooting 3-D in my back yard, I could take those 40-50 yard shots. But I dont because when I see a deer (even a doe) with my bow I STILL to this day (even after 16 years of hunting) get "buck fever". The shaking, rapid breathing, heart pounding, and its hard to control those emtions sometimes. Thats why I'm afraid of taking those shots out past 30-35 yards. I have no dought my "skills" are good enough, BUT when mixed in with the "buck fever" emotional response....I can't do it.....anyway...just rambling.

I know what you mean, its a little different sitting some long hours in the cold,stiff as a board than at home and relaxed. Not every archer is alike, we are humans after all. So do what you feel good about. Push the envelope during practice, not during the kill shot.
