I'm just curious to know what distance people here usually shoot at for practice? Until a month ago, I had a 12 year old Bowtech, and I never felt confident past 25 or 30 yards. Now, I just got an Elite Impulse 31 and I'm getting decent groups at 40. I'm in love with shooting again! What's your practice routine?

I shoot anywhere from 20-100. I would say I shoot more arrows at 30 than anything 40 and 20 next.

When practicing out door spots usually shoot 60+ yards. If learn to aim good there the closer ones are easier.

ASA Super Senior, I practice a lot at 15 thru 40 yards, but do practice out to 50 yards because of local 3D clubs will use 50 and more. When I shot Field I practiced out to 80 yards. With all my hunting bows I practice out to my imposed limit of 40 yards.

Your old Bowtech may needs a bit tuning and maybe it fitted to you.

I typically shoot the first couple ends at 40 and then move back to 50 and shoot a bunch at 50. I will shoot a couple ends at 60 and then wrap up with several ends at 20.

Once it warms up I practice from 30-50 yards depending on how strong the wind is. On real calm days I work back to 80 yards but if there's more than a slight breeze I don't even try.

Then in september I lock my slider at 27 yards and practice from 5 to 35 yards.

Once in a great while I will shoot 20, but usually I start at 30, then 40, 50, 60 and back down.

Oh and always end on a good shot!!

I like to start at 50 and work my way back. Depending on how I'm shooting I sometime move all the way back to 90. Nothing builds my confidence more then ending a session on a bullseye at 90.

I always try to mix it up. Just outside my garage door to my primary target is 43 yrds. I practice that shot alot. Nothing like a 40-50 split pin shot cold. Then straight out the door I have a second target set at 70 yds. Just depends. If I walk out into the yard I go from 0 to 100 yrds. Usually I try to think of what I shot last and mix it up to stay fluid.

Good luck,

Here in Northern AZ you need to shoot out to 80 yards. Seems as the Mules stay anywhere from 60 to 80 yards away on spot and stock. Elk a little different as if you can draw a tag in the rut, 20-40 yarder may be possible. Saying that I have a range on my property from 20-100. My pins are set at 40 to 80 but can adjust. I like to shoot 60-80 as much as possible.

I usually shoot most of my arrows at 20, 30, and 40 yards. However, I typically shoot about 3 rounds each at 20-40, two at 50, and one each at 60 and 70 yards. A round for me consists of 6-10 arrows. I almost always end the day with a round at 30 yards.

I can only squeeze 40 meters out of my backyard.

I can have a lot more if I don't mind losing arrows in the farmer's field...

20-100 yards with a great amount of time focused in the 70-100 yard distances.
