B) 20-39
C) 40-59
D) 60+

Most hunting shots are under 20yds as I try to set stands as close to20 as possible. but shoot 3d out to 45-50. would never shoot at live game at more than 30.

Default RE: Average shooting distance

I' ll practice seriously out to 50-60 yards to re-establish good form(sometimes 80-90 for giggles and to really test that form)Plus shoot a bunch of 3D
When the season rolls around and much more treestand practicing occurs , the bulk of the shooting is 40yds and under, with the majority of that being 30 and under.

All that long range stuff aside I have keeping track of my " Average" shot distance on Whitetails, and its somewhere around 13.5 yards. so I fall into " Group A" for actual shot average.
