    On my 45 pound bow I shoot 10 20 25 30 u don't really need a 5 or 0 pin whit a 10 if a deer comes in at 5 you just be a few inches high and I a tree stand it's hard to shoot 5 yards anyways.

    One shoots at 222 fps. It has a 3 pin sight set at 0, 10, 20
    The other is about 255 fps and it has a 4 pin sight 10,20,25,30.

    I thought I would add one more thing...

    My dad used to bow hunt until recently and his bow is set at 0, 15, 25. He has shot probably 60 deer and none have been over 30 yds so in his opinion there is no need fo go beyond 25 yds. Or for that matter above 50# if your hunting medium sized game. His bow is probably 45#. Accuracy is deadly is his mantra. It's all that matters to him and he's very accurate.

    I set mine to 20, 30, and 40. I'm not comfortable shooting past 40, so I took the fourth pin off.

    I use one pin for 20-25 yard shots. In the area I hunt I can't shoot much farther than that.

    10,20,30,40 and if you have a 15 yard shot put the heart of the deer between the 10 and 20 pins, if it's 25 yard shot put the heart between 20 and 30 etc. You should have all your bases covered with that setup.

    I have my first one set on my bow at 13 yards, then go to 23, then 30. Unless you are a dedicated and experienced shooter/hunter anything much past 35-40 yards is too far.

    I start at 10 and then go up to 20 and then to 30 and so on.

    I would start at 20, 30, 40, 50. I hunt in the woods and never sit at a field edge though.

    yeah sorry didn't know what still hunting totally meant. It was my first year hunting last fall so I don't know alot of stuff quite yet.

    Still hunting in a tree stand huh? Interesting...

    I just have one pin and I know what to do with it. My shots are rarely over 20 yards, though. Most are much less even. If I'm gonna bowhunt, I'm gonna bowhunt. I guess using a recurve with no pin facilitates that.

    On the other hand, If I was planning an open country muley stalk or something of the like, I would go for Clay's setup.
