All who have posted do bring up very go points about different pin configurations. I too have used both kinds quite a lot. This past season I changed over to a single pin adjustable sight. Vital gear with pin coming out of the bottom. I like that single pin because i am able to see more of my target while im shooting. I does adjust out to 85 yards but i will never shoot at a deer at that distance I only shoot at that distance to control my sight better. At that yardage i can tell where my for is getting bad if im tired. I slowly move my target in after 10 - 20 shots at 5 yard increments. So by the time im in at 40 yards i have put many arrows down range and the 40 yard shot feels like im really close.
Tim that brings up another topic, Practice regiments with all sorts of questions one can ask to themselves because really it a one on one thing playing against your best and worst shot, not for from playing golf.
Questions like how many arrows do you shoot in one practice session, at what ranges does your practice entail as in yardage, and how often do you practice your shooting with a bow, all the while trying to be repeatably consistent while focusing on improving your form so when hunting you really don't think about it - it goes into action from all the practice session before this. Not to unlike what the athletes did at the Winter Olympics from practice builds memory both mentally and physically so when your in the game you're ready to play.

When I go elk hunting, I do practice out to 60 yards. I do not think that I would shoot at an elk past 40-45 yards. But, the practice sure helps. Anyway, I set my pins at 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 yards. Been doing that for years and it has worked well for me.

I have a 7pin Spot Hogg-it 7pin sight and it is wrapped. I really like it alot, the pins are 019 size. The pins will be set up 20-80 yards. I wish the last 4 pins, the ones that are 50, 60, 70, and 80 were 010 size, but there not, maybe next year I will have the last 4 pins changed out to 010 size. I am going to be practicing out to 80 yards this spring and summer with my Dxt. I hope to get a competition bow next, and If I do , I will put a sure-loc slider pin with scope and only one pin on it for competitions. I really want a Z7 bow also. I don't know for sure if my next bow will be a Z7, or competition bow, because I still love my Dxt, and a Z7 is better, but very similar to my Dxt, and not a hudge upgrade from a Dxt, so any way, back to the subject, pins for hunting, single pin for competitions and 3D's is the route I'm headed.
