    Default Sight Pin setting

    would like to ask bro and sis out there, how do you set your say 10 yards, or 15 yards sight pin?

    For me, my nearest yardage on my top pin will sit at 25 yards. i cant go lower with that.
    there is no more room for me to adjust the pin and the gang adjustment of the housing also to the max.
    Any tips or advice to solve the problem. Anybody has this same problem?

    If you happens to have a big buck walking by you say at 15 yards. Bro, how would you shoot it.

    Hey bro, its sounds like your peep is to high. To check it and see if it is, you need to draw the bow back level with your eyes closed. Open your eyes when you are anchored. You should be able to see straight through your peep if you can't adjust it accordingly. Then re-sight your bow.

    Hello,i use a single pin cobra slider sight,sighted in up to 60yds.I set it at 20yds when i hunt as there is almost no difference in the x at 20 yds and in.All my hunting spots are purposly set at 20yds and closer.
    But i like to practise out to 60yds killing foam.

    the problem is i cant go lower for the peep. if i go lowering the peep, its not comfortable, very hard to shoot, and not consistent, coz i tried it before, the neck is tiring to c thru the lower peep. it not natural.

    Bro Hutch, and yes, i did wat you mentioned. closed eye, draw naturally, and mark the point to place the peep, and i really end up this shooting distance.

    I now have no choice to shot at 25 yards mark at least. used to shot at 20 yards mark, but the new string and cable is WOW. i have to step back for till 25yard market.

    Or getting a big sight housing?

    Bro SpeedKills, dont torture the foam so harsh....

    No, that's a very nice sight. I don't think that's the problem.

    What poundage is the bow set for? Have you checked to make sure your nocking point is correct recently?

    To answer your question about shooting an animal that is at 15 yards, I would just aim a little lower than normal.

    poundage set at 52#. Draw Lenght at 27". nocking point just line up with the berger hole, just nice for my 4" vane to make the clearance.

    I did trial and error yesterday shooting 10 yards and 15 yards, a did try to aim half of the sight housing in the peep and shoot with the top pin, and the repeat shot constantly, but it just kinda weird.

    Bro Arrow Splitter, thanks for the input. but how do you make the reference point? or just shot little lower by instinct.

    Just giving a little about how i like to do things:I will pick a sight out doesnt matter which one,but i like to make sure my peep covers just the out side of glow ring.Dont want the peep to be bigger to hard to line things up.
    Then i will line one pin or as many as i have with the target and the peep remains around the glow ring at all times, instead of trying to center the peep around each pin.And i shoot with both eye's open which makes doing it this way alot easier.

    im practicing the same method. Infact shooting with both eye's open will give a clearer picture of the target or animal. which i did the same when shooting shotgun.

    perhaps i would need more practice to shot instinctively for the short range.
