Default RE: whats the maximum shot you would ever take on a deer?

Well, seeing as how I only practice out to 30, that's my max. Doesn't matter what the size of the deer is, they are all trophies to me. The only way I would be shooting further is if I misjudged the distance and it ended up being longer than 30 yards (not likely as I have a very conservative estimating problem lol).

The longest shot I ever practiced (3d shoot) was a 70 yard broadside shot... boy was that a toughie! Sheesh! At the time, I was only pulling 42# and I had to aim three feet high. I was right on with placement, but fell short about 4 feet or so. I can't imagine anyone taking that kind of a shot at a deer!
