    New sight at 40 yards..I heard the arrows hit so I shot my last one at the left bullseye. I just replace a sight that had .029 pins with a Truglo 4 pin .019 pins and it awesome. I was having problems with the pins covering the target at 40 yards.

    Grouping
    Nice shooting shark! That is a spectacular group at 40 yards. You shouldn't have any problems with the harvest this year. That is as long as you're seeing the deer. I'm sure you are though. Again, great shooting man!
    P.S. Shoot for the small black dots around the center from now on and measure the distance from each arrow to the center of the dot and then average the distances to get your grouping. Save those knocks and vanes for the deer! Lol

    That's the Way!
    That's the way to stack them! I shoot that .019 pin as you know. It makes a big difference in low light right at dark-30, you don't have those larger pins blinding you with light. That is other good reason for shooting single pin sights.

    Keep up the great shooting....I want to see a picture of a deer with 2 holes in him!

    Range Finder
    You need to ask Inferno4me about that. I have the Bushnell pro which is about 4 or 5 years old and before they had them with 'ARC'. I use mine all time time but mainly to see where the 40 yard mark is.....that's when I have to make an adjustment on my pendulum site so it will shoot 40 yards to 65! The only time I use it rifle hunting is to see where 300 yards is. That's when I have to start holding over...lol! Man I love technology!

    Rangefinder
    Hey Shark...Nows not the time with everyone getting the bug about hunting but in the Spring and early summer...Keep a eye on Ebay...Mine is a $200 Nikon 440 realtree Camo and i Got it New for under $80...Trick is to have a price in mind that you feel comfortable with and wait to the final seconds to bid or people will run the price up on ya and then if you still don't win it then it sold for more than you was willing to pay anyway. Back when i bought my Summit 180...Lone Wolf Climbers were selling used for around $150/$180 and Now they are bringing over $300 Used...It's a seasonal thing if you know what i mean...Like Right Now you can get some great deals on Turkey Calls ETC. I get them and sit on them till Spring when Turkeys are whats on peoples mind and i do pretty Good.

    Range finders
    Shark, the biggest thing I can tell you about rangefinders is that they are like cars. You get what you pay for. Like the guys are saying its gonna be tough to find a good deal right now because season is so close but they are out there. My suggestion is the Nikon Archers choice for bow hunting. They have angle elevation compensation and it is very easy to switch from the angle mode to shooting on the ground. The is an older version that is going pretty cheap right now because it only ranges out to 99 yards in the angle mode but it will range out to 200 when not in the angle mode. The real key though is in how high your stands are and how hilly is the area you hunt. Anything with over 5 degrees has to have some kind of compensation and that doesn't really matter if you are on the ground or in the air. It is very tricky but if you practice it and log your shots on a note pad you will learn it quickly and then a rangefinder isn't really necessary. Man I could go on for days on this topic but I will cut it short. If you can do it get you a range finder that will calculate elevation and give you the correct pin to shoot and then after the season is out get into shooting some 3d tournaments. It is cheap and a lot of fun and you will learn a ton!
