There are bow hunters that can and do made 50 yd shots. For 95% of bow hunters a 50 yd shot is probably not a good shot. My shots are different due to equipment. 40 yds for crossbow, 30 yds for compound. I shoot 99% of my deer under 25 yds. For those who practice and (know) the shot to be taken is a good one, 50yds is with-in the killing range of fast, flat shooting, modern bows.
