Peep sight

Just got a new peep sight for my bow  and am still figuting out how to adjust it so that I can see through it.  I have moved it down and up and readjusted my pin sight.  I guess that I just heve to get it set for me and keep trying.  The tip I read in here about shutting my eyes and drawing the bow and the peep sight should be where I can see through it was a good one, but I still have to set it so that I can se through it.  Any other tips?

When you have your bow drawn

When you have your bow drawn is the peep twsited a bit?  Sometiomes with a new peep installed it will turn.  Before you draw your bow back you can give the peep a quick turn in either direction that is needed that will help square the peep to your eye. I had to do it for awhile until the new string a peep set in better.  If that does not work it may require it be served in differently.

Are you setting the peep by

Are you setting the peep by yourself?  It would be a lot easier if you had someone help with the process.  You are correct though, once you get it close, draw your bow back with your eyes closed and then open your eyes and see if you can see through it.  That's when the other person comes in handy because they can move the peep up or down for you while you're at full draw.  The other person also can watch you and see if you are moving your head when you are trying to look through the peep.

Good Idea to have another person ther to adjust the pep sight while I'm at full draw.  Thanks ever so much

shop.

I'd recommend just taking it to a good shop and having them do it, that way you know its done right and wont slip. Its very cheap to have them do it, my shop charges $10 to do it, they'll set it and serve it in so it wont slip or rotate. you dont wanna be in the woods have have something bad happen like a peep slip out of place or you go to look through it and its sideways. Just take it in and have it done right.

Love the peep sight

Now that I got used to it, the peep sight is really helping.  I have been practicing and have graduated from 10 yards to 25 yards.  Love the peep sight.

Another thing you can do if

Another thing you can do if your peep is turned, is to treek your d-loop a bit in the direction that your peep is turned. What that will do is when you hook your release on and draw your bow it will turn your peep to straighten it.

You can go to a bow shop and have it fixed.  But sometime these things happen out in the field and it is good to be able to fix them yourself. These are just a few tips to get you by till you can get to a shop.

Peep Sight

When i had mine installed at the bow shop i had the same problem. The guy at the shop took a 1/8" drill bit and with his fingers he made the hole in the peep a little larger.....Problem solved, i could see through it perfectly.

 The hole can be bigger he told me. It's just for eye/anchor point/sight alignment and if its too small it won't work in lowlight sitiations either. I have done it on both of my bows now with awesome results
