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.

My name is John I'm having a little problem with seeing my target though a normal peep sight. I want to make it clear so everytime I shoot pass 20 yrds it will be clear for me all the time. What can I do to make it happen?

Welcome to the forum John.

 

I would start with an eye exam.  Also they do have larger peep sight holes you could try.  Good luck, let us know what you find out?

If eyes are the issue you can add a magnifyer to the peep. They have them at A1 and other sporting goods shops.
