I use an adjustable single pin set sighted in at 10,20 and 30.

My last 2 deer have both been 30 yard shots.

im set at 58, not much difference, I have mine set at 20,30,40, and to be honest the pins are just to close, I could you use my 20 are pin at 30 yards, just a few inches higher of course, but I keep it as is, its a comfort thing i guess

20,30,40 and 50. I spend most of my practicing at 40 and 50 yds. I have never shot 50 yds at a deer but I do use it for killing groundhogs in my food plot when there isn't much else to hunt with the bow.

I changed to a 5 pin and figured 20 30 40 50 60. Though I have yet to shoot that far much and plan to keep it at 30 or less this season. I am thinking about changing it to 20 30 40 45 50. Mine does not drop much till it gets pass 30. At 40 or 50 I have enough time to look out and see the arrow hit. Seems like a year passes when the arrow leave and hits at that range

My bow was maxed out at 80 pounds when I picked it up..I was kind of embarrassed that I couldn't pull it back...The dealer kind of smiled. So fo rmy manhood's sake I pulled that baby back..my shoulder is still killing me.LOL I have it set at 58 now.Much more manageable.
