I plan on hunting whitetail this season with open sights for the first time.I will be using a .444 marlin.What do you think the maximum range for using open sights should be?I have my blind about 40 yards from the deer trail and I think I should do alright,but what distance do you think I could go out to if needed?

how far can you keep all your rounds within a 8" (broadside shot) circle or less, off hand? thats your answer.

If he has a blind then he should have a rest. What kind of open sights are you using? I can use a peep for a fair distance. Semi-buckhorns are more of a challenge for me.

No one can answer that question for you. Whatever range where YOU can keep 100% of your shots in a kill zone sized area.
