Default Shots under 20 yds......

Set up a pop-up blind in a very secluded/wooded area that we hunt as kind of a "oh what the heck" kind of spot to go hunt if I dont feel like hunting any of the other set-ups or just to get a change of scenery. Anyrate, the farthest shot will be about 18 yards. Pins are set at 20,30,40 yds. What pin do I use for a 8,10, 12 yard shot?

Practice at home first. I have had to look down the shaft before for a 5 yard shot. I think something like my 50 yard pin works for 5 yards.

As stated above, 20 pin will be money. But prove it to yourself by shooting a target first so u don’t talk urself into doing something foolish while at full draw on a deer.

At 10 yards you should be able to put your whole sight ring over the vitals and be eating deer steak that evening.

On my bow the pin I have set for 10 yards is on from 10-20 yards. My next pin is my 30 yard pin. Your 20 might work, Just shoot a few practice arrows to double check. Always glad to help ya out.
