I am just getting back in to archery, but I wanted to chime in.

First, some background questions:

Are you shooting right or left-handed?

Are you shooting fingers or a release?

Thoughts:

Are you holding your follow-through?

Can you move the entire pin-site bracket?

To answer your questions.

I am shooting right handed and with a shooting glove so fingers, I am holding the follow through(a trick I learned by watching the hunting shows where Pete Shepley gives pointers.  And yes the entire pin-sight bracket moves, and I have it all the way to the left and am still shooting left.  I had the idea that a peep sight might help, does anyone have any thoughts on this?Huh?

I think I saw on another post that you have added a peep to your bow.  Did adding a peep help with this problem?

Yes I added a peep sight and after I finally got used to using the peep sight, it seems to have helped.  I have my bow sighted in at 20 yards and am working on 25 yards, and when I get 25 yards sighted in, I'm going to sight it in at 35 yards.  Not bad considering I was shooting far left at 10 yards without the peep sight.  I should be ready for deer season when it starts.

I have two tips for you. 1. 

I have two tips for you.

1.  Practice.....practice...practice...I shot almost every day atleast 20 arrows.  And I try not to use my range finder as to get used to judging distance with out one....need to be quick in certain instances and you may not have time to range them.

2.  Most importantly.....CHECK YOUR ARROWS AFTER EVERY SHOT....no if's and's or but's.....flex and twist it it save you in the long run.

This is a really excellent

This is a really excellent thread. I would agree with the others; practice is key. A couple of rangefinders for bows http://www.betteryourhunt.com/products/Legend-1200-ARC-%28Bow-%26-Rifle%29.html, or http://www.betteryourhunt.com/products/Vendetta-Rngfndr-for-Bow.html

Best of luck to you; you'll be addicted soon.
