I use a "Carolina Foxfire fixed single pin", (see below) I tried a pendulum and couldn't hold accuracy with it, my shot patterns were erratic, then I switched to the fixed single pin. I started shooting much better.
Not everyone can shoot a single pin , they are just not capable of adapting from a multi-pin sight to a single BUT with practice and patience I'm sure you can see how a single pin has one big advantage over multi-pin sights, you dont have to ever wonder "Which Pin do I use"?
Whether the animal is at 10 yards or 40 yards you just draw back aim and release BUT you still have to be a good judge of distance.
I practice at 20, 30, and 40 yards but I always set up a 60 yard target as well and I can tell ya that I won't ever try killing an animal at 60 yds. But it's nice knowing I would be in the vitals if i tried. Good luck with whichever one you choose. :thumbup:

wmi is absolutely right, I along with most other seasoned hunters can't emphasize enough how important it is to practice,
whether you're using a single pin or otherwise, the last thing any ethical hunter wants to be doing is flinging arrows and just wounding wild animals.

mskissguy asks;
"single pin? what do you do hold low or high depending on the distance?"

the short answer is NO.
Give this a try, I want you to stand as if you have your bow drawn back on a 10 yard target.
NOW, Imagine in your head there's a 20 yard target right behind it, Slowly take aim on the 20 yard target and notice what happens as you take aim.
You raised your arm and bow to align with the 20 yard target, that raises your (bow, pin and arrow) as well. same goes for 30 and 40 yard targets
BUT again I should stress that shooting a single pin (like wmi says) probably isnt the best way to enter the world or Archery.
And the long answer to your question is YES sometimes I can sense that I need to make adjustments to my shot like (shooting downhill or uphill or shooting in high winds)...
