Single pin sight

17 posts in this topic

I was wondering how the fixed single pin sights work? I know there different from a pendulum because they dont move.

I'm assuming you're referring to the slider... Basically your scope is attached to an arm that slides up and down in a fixed bracket that mounts to your bow. You'll have some unit of measure (tape, notches, etc) that you can line up the slider with to shoot different distances. As you slide it up/down the scope will raise and vice versa. I'm sure I'm making it a lot more confusing than it actually is but it's quite simple. Hopefully someone can chime in and give you a better description. It's nice to be able to focus on just one pin. You just have to remember to adjust it accordingly before every shot.

Yea, how easy and accurate are they? I hunted with a guy who has one but forgot to ask him about it.

When deer hunting I set it to 20 yards and leave it. The only time I take advantage of the sights adjustability is at 3D shoots.

So you set it and dont change anything even if your shooting over 20 years like 30-50?

I've got mine marked from 20-50. It's constantly moving throughout the season.

I use one for target shooting, and yes, they are very accurate. I do not use it for hunting only because the adjustment for mine is behind my bow quiver.

I know several who do hunt with one and most really like it. They also leave it set at 20 yards. If you have the time to move it for a longer shot, by all means do so.

sticknstring, I see you're not getting any work done today either. blush

Yeah well I just wish it was due to your circumstances on leaving for a hunt instead of having a quiet afternoon at the office cry

Good luck - hope to see some turk & antler pics next week!

I also have one, the HHA style in the second pic. They are extremely accurate and very versatile. I will admit that I have wounded a deer before because I ranged incorrectly and chose the wrong pin on my sight.

Now I use a rangefinder, and I use one pin. I adjust as needed. HHA sells their sights with premade sight tapes. After sighting in with the right procedure, I put the tape that matched on my bow and I now have all my ranges set from 20-60yds. I can make a 6" cirlce at 60yds.

Power do you have a scope on your HHA? I think you can get one from what i saw.

Yes you can get one. I also shoot the HHA site, i just leave mine set at 20 yards.. I think its like 80$ for a 2x or 4x lense??

Well i know it shoots about 3" low at 30 yards and i personally beleive that most people dont have any business shooting farther than that anyway. Too many things can go wrong when your wingin arrows 40-50 yards... just my opinion... The longest shot ive ever taken was 36 yards, i just aimed at the top of its back and let er rip. No the smartest thing ive ever done, but i was new to it.. got it right in the liver and it went 100 yards and tipped over. All my stands are set up for an average of 14-15 yard shots, i shot 2 last year at 10-11 yards...

Leaving first thing in the morning. I'll be sure to have a story with pix after next week.

I doubt I'd ever shoot at a deer over 30 yards. In fact my shooting lanes max out at 25 yards. Most new bows shoot quite flat out to 30 yards. The difference between 10, 20, and 30 yards probably isn't much more than a pin width. As I posted above, I only purchased an adjustable sight for 3D shoots.

    • From your link-     I thought I would highlight a few tidbits for the Benghazi impaired . 
    •   NSA To Provide "Smoking Gun" Proof Obama Spied On Trump Mar 24, 2017 5:43 AM   Yesterday, Republican Devin Nunez Nunes held an explosive press conference outside the White House in which he told reporters that communications from the Trump team were picked up and disseminated within the government during the 2016 campaign.  Not surprisingly, the comments ruffled some liberal feathers and the mainstream media launched an immediate smear campaign calling for Nunes to resign his post immediately.  Now, according to Fox News sources, congressional investigators expect that a potential “smoking gun” from the NSA establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee as early as tomorrow.   The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.   The FBI hasn’t been responsive to the House Intelligence Committee’s request for documents, but the National Security Agency is expected to produce documents to the committee by Friday. The NSA document production is expected to produce more intelligence than Nunes has so far seen or described – including what one source described as a potential “smoking gun” establishing the spying.   Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretappedhim in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.   The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.   Because Nunes’s intelligence came from multiple sources during a span of several weeks, and he has not shared the actual materials with his committee colleagues, he will be the only member of the panel in a position to know whether the NSA has turned over some or all of the intelligence he is citing. If true, of course, this could put a 'slight' taint Obama's claim of a "scandal free" eight years in the White House.   **snip**   .........If Nunes is correct, and Trump was being wiretapped for reasons having nothing to do with Russia, that entire narrative falls apart, and the press will now have to spend the next few weeks building up an entirely new narrative to "justify" why Trump was being wiretapped on Obama's watch.   Link     Delicious...  
    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
