Recommended Posts

I am going to replace the sight on a bow that I was givin. How do I start the ight in process. Is there any way to get close before going out shooting? Thanks in advance.

Here's what I do.... install the sight on the bow, then depending on your sight there should be a set screw that allows for movement left/right and another for up/down of the entire pin housing... what you what to do is once you have the sight on, nock an arrow, look from the string side, visually line up the string down the center of the arrow, then move you sight left/right so your string covers your pins... that is as close as your gonna get without shooting it. As far as elevation adjustments, that's a shoot and adjust type deal.. Just put a new sight on one of my bows last week and had it driving tacks again at 20 yards after 5 arrows...

You want your arrow, sting, and pins to all be perfectly straight with each other. when adjusting yardage, I like to set my 20 yard pin to where i will want it, usually towards the top of the sight, and then adjust the whole thing at 20 yards without moving that pin and then move on to other yardages!

I put my bow on a big piece of cardboard and grab a sharpee.....

Trace out parts of the bow, then mark your top site pin....

Install new site, your right left just make a good guess, you'll be on the target anyway at 20

Good luck
