Default Gettin Back

Gettin back into bow hunting. I was wondering at what ranges i should set my pins? and if my gear was good enough. I will be using a 5year old bow(new string) with about 70-75lb draw at 27" custom arrows and i dont remember what grain tips. The arrows were made custom at a bow shop so i know they will do the trick. I want a PSE but i dont wanna spend the money until i see if its something i want to get back into. But i also dont want to wound a deer and have it run off and die.

Well, the information supplied is pretty vague at best, but I am confident that if you practice and can put a razor sharp broadhead through the boiler room you will have your deer.

Most folks that I shoot with or run into typically have a 3 pin setup with the pins set at 20, 30 and 40 yards. As for your other comments...practice often enough between now and the opener and get to know your equipment as much as possible. You will do fine.
