Difficult to see target when looking thru peep sight

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 I was wondering if somebody can help me out by giving me some advice as I am new to archery and don't have any friends who does it.  I have been having extreme issues sighting in my 30 yard and 40 yard pin.  The difficulty lies with me not really able to see my target while I look through my peep sight.  I can't see my target clear enough to align my pin at 30 yards or more to it.  It is just to blurry.  I can see my pin fine but not the target.   I have a Gold Rush 3 pin as my sight on my bow.  

Could it be that my peep sight was installed incorrectly?  Is my peep sight too small for me?    Thanks..

I have perfect vision.  No glasses needed. Last time I got it checked was 2 months ago for my driver license renewal.

I switched from a 1/8 peep to a 1/4 and the difference blew my mind. Now I can see the entire sight picture, where before I could only see my pin through the peep. 

A peeps main objective is to ensure you the same anchor each and every shot. Better to open it up if it helps you with a clearer sight picture.

Remove the peep site and use a kisser button instead to ensure you keep the same anchor point.   If you absolutely want the peep, use a bigger one.    I stopped using a peep years ago and have a simple brass nock which goes to the corner of my mouth when at full draw.

What kind of peep is it? I had problems with my 3 string peep sight when my bow was new I was getting string twist and it was causing the peep to be blocked by the string a little bit.

Make sure also that your draw length is absolutely correct and your peep is placed correctly.  If you are straining or required to change your head/neck to get your eye to the peep, something is wrong and it may screw up.

Try a larger peep, double check your form. Sometimes if my form is off everything else gets messy.

This seems to be my issue all the time!:blush:

I have a large Meta Peep and I went to shooting with both eyes open.  This made a world of difference for me....

I can see my target and through the peep!!

Just a thought, have you checked your eye dominance? If you are looking through your off eye that can make a difference at longer yardages....Unfortunately I have this problem and should've been shooting left handed long ago.  Too stubborn to make that change now, so I shoot a larger peep, with a single pin sight, seems to help- Good Luck

I still do it old school.  Have an archery shop put a peep tube on for you. It's a small rubber tube that pulls your peep straight every time. No worries, it's always in the right spot.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
