1) stand with a safety harness. practice with your bow a lot from a stand to get good at shooting from it.
2) 30 yards max
3) mechanical (rage)
4) get as much huntable land as you can possibley get..the more the better. don't limit yourself to just a smaller piece. Ask your neighbor in person, they appreciate that better.

no problem.

make sure you are shooting well out to 30 yards both with the broadheads and field points. if you cannot afford a tree stand, then you can make a ground blind next to the deer trails you find or get a cheap ground blind to use.

good luck!

Do not try mechanical with that draw weight! There's not enough energy behind the head to work properly!

Just a quick comment here. I'm not out to start a huge debate. I think the conventional wisdom seems to be a 2 blade fixed broadhead for light poundage bows and was wondering if 40 lbs. might not fit into that category. But I will say this, if using a mechanical the rage is the only way to go.

Kenetic energy - at that draw weight there just isn't enough generatedto ensure that a mechanical will open upon impact.

You're way under powered for mechanicals. Don't even think about it. Cut on contact only for you.
