Just thought we might have share our aiming methods , and how set up our shots ? 

I am currently going back and exploring Field archery and as such am trying to get some gaps established. Under 30 metres I am still , for want of a better word "instinctive" , or subconsciously aiming , and past that I going back to a dedicated gap . 
As I am playing with recurves for the first time in a long long time, rather than my longbows , I have found some more options in terms of reference points.

As I am shooting off an elevated rest on my 'curve , my sight picture tends to look like 
30 metres and under - Pick a spot
30- 40 metres          - Arrow tip above the top X
40 -50 metres          - I use the arm of my rest 
50 - I use my shelf and gap off that for further distance 
80 Yards ? --- a work in progress

This is with My 47#  17" Titan 

With my longbows [ all Hill style ] ?
I have been using them so long that at my sight picture is pretty ingrained at most distances ... but I am looking to actually start grouping at 50 metres , 60 and 80
shooting split ... a work in progress indeed !!!

You can change your anchor points on your face as well for longer distances. That works for a lot of people. Also I know my gaps as close to the inch as I can.

Work in progress indeed ! As with you, shooting my longbows within my comfort range has resulted in an ingrained visual, that requires no thought, but even though i practice at longer yardages in order get my form in shape for my hunting ranges, 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80 meters would be a huge challenge indeed.
Good luck on this challenge, as  hard work and determination will get it done, while having fun.[thumb]

I shoot split vision/gap, usually anything under 20 yards is instinctive. Way back when I was shooting field in the longbow class, I knew my point on at every distance.
