You're thinking too much. Anything can happen, but if the deer is not spooked you can read them pretty well and know when to shoot. If you have experience and can contain your nerves, no reason you cannot shoot at whatever distance you are comfortable with a target. If you cannot contain your nerves, it makes little difference the distance at what you shoot. But the only way to get experience is to shoot... Nobody wants to wound an animal, but can't kill one with the bolt/arrow/bullet still in the weapon.
