Default What are your pins set at?

Just wondering what everyone sets their pins at (mainly for hunting). I have 5 pins and I can't decide what to put them at. I was thinking 20, 25, 30, 35, 40. Any suggestions? I will be hunting off the ground and a treestand. I wouldn't shoot anything more than 45 yards.

That seems like a lot of pins to cover such a short amount of yardage. I currently have three pins set for 20, 30, and 40 yards. Do you have lots of gap between the pins when you have the set for ten yard increments?

You always want a pin at your max yardage. I have a 20,30,40,45,50 i will not shot a animal past 50 for many reason. If i was you i would have a 20, 30, 40 and a 45. Too many pins can be confusing, especially when excited. It what ever you like.

20, 40, 60, gonna throw an 80 on there.

10 yard gap was too narrow for my like. The pins kind of blurred together, so I went to 20 yrd gaps and I like it.

All I really need for hunting is the 20yd pin. The others are just for fun.

For hunting = 3 pins - 20 30 40 yds
For practice = 1 pin - 10 - 70 yds in 5 yrd increment settings

Short, Long, and Really Long
