    I think it is all up to the shooter. All of us arent steady enough to shoot 60 yards. Im not. I will shoot 50 but 60 i would let it walk. Just because alot of people now days shoot 60 doesnt mean everyone should. But if you feel comfortable at 60 then at a pin amd go for it. I would add a pin if i had the room in my wite circle and could shoot that far and still be accurate to my standards. I always have said that if you cant hit a tennis ball at whatever distance then your max range should be ten yards short of that. Jmo. Hope it helps. Again if your a good 60 yard shooter go for it. Of not do the animal and your self a favor and try to get closer.

    Depends when you hunt,during rut fifty yards is probably safe. After rut you should push it out to seventy yards to be safe.

    I drew a archery Bull tag in 2011, I learned a couple of things. The elk zone is a large area, and all the elk gun hunters aren't able to cover all of it so bulls are not overly spooky. Elk are large big boned animals, use quality archery equipment, 1 piece broadheads like G-5's and quality carbon arrows will not let you down. Of the 5 bulls I encountered 1 was at 43 yds, 3 within 30yds or closer, and 1 at 15 feet I missed, used my 20yd pin. I did take a decent 5x5 at 26yds.
