Default Shooting Distance

I recently purchased a new spot hogg real deal sight. Its a 5 pin I have it sighted in out to 60yrds and I'm hitting very consistant. Before this I used a single pin sight and only shot out to 30yrds. Just looking for opinions as to what distance is to far to take game for the average hunter.

I agree Rob! I was shooting 60 yards at the house here the other day as well as 50 & 40 and no way would I be comfortable shooting at a deer at that distance! Not yet anyways![8D]
