Well what I am about to say will no dought raise some eye brows.
But I personnaly know severl guys That practice at 100 yards, they have pins that go from 30 to 100 yards on their bows, and consistly shoot a 5 inch group at 100 yards, they shoot yotes, jackrabbits all year long to stay in shape, as a couple of you know who have been in this lower desert its tough to get close to some of those mosters.
I personally have a 70 yard pin on mine, and can shoot a sub 5 inch group at that distance, and would not hesitate to shoot one at 70 yards, That little buck I just shot in jan was 61 yards with the range finder, but I would not shoot past 70 because I have not practiced at that range,
With the way bows a shooting now, I dont see a problem it, but most people will, I can rember going thru the same debate when inline muzzle loaders started to hit the market, now guys myself inclueded are shooting out to 250 yards. when it comes down to it, its in the hands of the shooter if they practice practice practice at what ever distance and consistly hit the spot, then good, but what it also does is make look like any one can do it, and you will have that guy shooting at game that is way out of range for them,
last year I would not let sherri shoot her smoke pole past 125 yards this year with more practice she is good for 150 yards, next year we will see,
Ok I will get off my stool for now, rember its just my opinon, and my .02 cents
