Default Whats your comfort Zone.

I was wondering when that big buck walks in and you have your bow in hand. How close do you want him before you shoot. I heard some guys say less that 30 yards and some say less than 70 yards. I wanted to see what you zone was. Mine is less than 40 yards.

Mine at this stage of the game is 40 yards. It used to farther when the eyes were better

There are times when a 20 yard shot is a No go! and there are times when a 40 yard shot is a slam dunk!

The most important thing is to learn the difference

Default No choice.....

I'm so thick, I couldn't get a shot out farther than 25-30 yards due to the thickness of veg surrounding me. I choose these spots (or they choose me), after scouting. Thats where they're at (bucks).

My sweet spot is 25 yards or less. I did mess up on a shot this year on a nine point at 25 yards. This was him at that moment. Its hard to see all nine but they are there.
