When sighting in a bow Do you follow the arrow?
Tight groups also show that you are consistent in your attempts to hit your aiming spot. “Follow the arrow” when adjusting your front sight. That is, if your arrows are grouping below and to the right of the bull’s eye on the target, move your front sight down and to the right.
Which way do you move the bow sight when shooting left?
If your arrows group to the left, move your sight to the left. If your arrows hit to the right, move your sight to the right. To remember which way to move your sight, imagine adjusting it until it covers your group. Make small adjustments until you get a feel for how far to move the sight.
Do you need a bow press to install a peep sight?
To install a peep, I do put the bow on my bowpress. However, when making a new string, I put the string on the bow to install the center serving. I use an awl to separate the string when threading the serving thread through the string to help lock it.
What distance should I set my bow sights?
The most common top pin setting for both timber and the open fields is 20 yards. These days, most compound bows are fast enough to see very little difference in arrow trajectory between 10-20 yards. When this is the case, the first pin is usually set at 20 yards that also serves as a pin for 10-25 yard distances.
Are tubeless tubes better than peep sights?
A tubeless peep sight is recommended for experienced archers that can work on their bow or frequently visit an archery shop. A peep sight with a tube is recommended for new archers that don’t want to bother with peep rotation issues and are looking for the easiest solution.
How do you align a peep sight on a bow?
Once the peep is set in the string, pull the bow back with your eyes closed and settle in to your natural anchor point. Open your eye and do not move! If you have someone helping, have them rotate the peep to perfect alignment and move it up or down the string until it aligns perfectly with the sight aperture.
