Peep sight and front sights

2 posts in this topic

Good Morning,

I have a Darton vapor bow I have been shooting for 2 years now i do very good groupings and have taken one deer. I always did have one problem when I look through the PEEP sight the 10 yard pin is obstructed by the curve on the bow right above. The pins are moved all the way up on the fron sight. I was looking through some tips and it says to close your eyes and anchor and you should be right on your peep sight. Well when I did this I end up noticing that my eye is right on the front sights but my peep sight seems to be 2 to 3 inches TOO HIGH! I think this is why my front sights are obstructed.

Does anyone know how long it takes and how much it costs to move my peep sight down. After that ill go and sight in my bow. Another thing is that when I do close my eyes relax and anchor i always end up in the same place (of course below the peep sight) but i see that my vision of the front sights is a whole lot better.

where can I take my bow to get the peep sight moved?

If you shoot a release then it should be pretty easy for you.

Any pro shop should be able to do it pretty cheap and it should only take a few minutes to move the peep and set it.

If you want to do a quick test, try shooting without your peep. Put a piece of tape on your string and use that as your anchor point so that your eye lines up below the peep. You don't need a peep to shoot but you could test it out and see if your pins move down for you.

If that works then go get your peep reset.

    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
    • And yet?   Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jan 21 A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!
    • I find it amusing to watch Fox slowly come to grips with the realization that a war against the media impacts them too.   They are completely gobsmacked over the crowd size press conference. As we all should be. How embarrassing.
    • Totally agree!
    • He got 3 quick ones off  before Conway took away his phone and tweeted the last one herself.^appleosx|twcamp^safari|twgr^profile
    • I got out with my old man for about 3 hours. Fished 18 to 21 feet of water used maki mino or wax worms. Caught some bigger gills over 8 inches up to 9 and 5/8ths those fish were released!
