How far do you practice at?

I saw in the Archery Forum above where the Montana dude shot out to just over 103 yards with his compound and had a great grouping. I am fortunate enough to be able to extend the range out at my place right out the front door. I shoot my Recurve almost daily (probably 40 arrows) from 20 yards out to 45 yards, with most of my shooting at between 35 and 40 yards. I will measure from the arrow to the center of the Bullseye with my thumb and little finger (8.75") any further and I consider myself unsuccessful at those longer distances (40-45). I enjoy practices out to those further distances and really say wow this is close when I finish off with 2 arrows at 20.

I practice from 5-30 yards normally. Mostly do to my shooting style 3under & heavy arrows.
I think shooting longer ranges is good for practice & makes the hunting range shots easier.

I like to shoot from 3 yards to 40 yards, also shoot 3 under, those longer shots help to keep your mind focused on form and keeps your head in the game.

I like to practice at all distances... The longer distances really amplify and problems with bad form and let you know what you need help with.

I'm with most of you guys. 3-50yrds unless I'm stump shooting than I'll go out further. When I shoot 3ds I will shoot for the pro stake. When hunting I hope my shots are at 17 yrds.

5yd--40yd most days, at times to 50yd for grins! I'm 3 under & left eye dominate but a right hand shooter so I use tip of arrow for judging.

With compound I practice out to 100yd on occasion, but mostly to 80yds.
