    Been shooting everyday, just curious. What is the max shot you would take under perfect conditions? (Deer)

    50 is the max and it had better be the most perfect of all perfect shots.

    I got a doe 2 years ago at 45 yrds with my SBXT and I feel safe with the monster with the extra 5 yrds.

    Plus the Grim Reapers will will still put a massive hole in one even with out and exit they will go down.

    60 would be my max and everything would have to be right.

    40yds would be my max, but have never shot further then 30yds. Most of my shots have been close to 15yds.

    I did right at 48 on this buck last year and you can see I had full penetration, got both lungs and top of heart. You can see the arrow passed through but the last 6″ stayed in, so I say about 50 on a Deer.
    If the wind ever stopped blowing out west, I would not stop at a perfect shot on a speed goat out to 60-65 yards. But it has to be a high percentage shot. I am more worried about KE than I am hitting my mark if the wind is not blowing hard left to right or right to left.

    70, practice at 80 allll day and makes 70 feel easy. i actually can shoot better at longer distances just cause i know i have to be spot on with everything to make a good shot.

    50 I shot a buck at 63 a couple of years ago he took one step and I was in the guts. A lot can happen in that split second.

    Did you recover him? That’s exactly why I don’t shoot too far out. Too many variables. I hope you found him. It sucks finding guts on your arrow.

    When you order your sight, get the 50 and 60 yard pin sized at .10 instead of the .19 ;)

    Yes I found him and put another arrow in him at 20 yds but swore to not do that again. But practice out to 70 yds it makes those shorter shots seem easy
