Modern bow equipment is amazing in its capabilities; however, we never recommend a shot over forty yards at an elk, deer or bear. It is important to be accurate with your archery equipment from 10 yards up to 40 yards. It is important to practice like you will be hunting (sitting, kneeling, standing, up hill, down hill, etc.). Not every opportunity comes with text book hunter positioning so be accurate and capable to make any shot required under difficult positions.
