BB, you're right and the farther out you go the more time the deer can react. I just don't like a low hit even though you think the shot was good, missing the heart equals a wounded lost deer. Just 2 clicks up and 2 to the left put things right where I feel pretty good out to 40 yds. Always the goal being to shoot closer but having the confidence to go out just a bit farther. The more I shoot the scope with the built in yardage marks the more I like it. Just a FYI, my son who's pretty strong tried to cock the bow with-out the string aid and had a rough time of it. The string cocking aid makes fairly easy work at the 200 lb draw weight of the Vortex.
