    Check your limb tiller, if the top limb is tighter than the bottom I think it will cause the arrow to hit higher.

    Ok, that puts a different light on things. I mean this as a legitimate question, but without a sight how can you know it's shooting high? What's to say it's not you?

    Barry,
    Once you have been shooting the bow long enough, you know if it's shooting high or low.
    I still say to take a look at the tiller, you can get the shot to hit lower if the bottom limb is a tad tighter than the top and vis-versa.
    I fine tune my arrow impact like this, I know where I want it to hit at a certain gap and adjust my bow to hit where I want it to. Then all my other gaps fall into place.
    You can do this without redjusting the nocking point to a degree.
    If you were to hang out and watch how I tune a finger bow it would drive you crazy...LOL
    Don PS,
    And you don't even want to get me started on how I tune arrows.....LOL

    Okay now I know you don't use a peep. The only way you are going to know exactly where that bow is shooting is to shoot the bow with some one standing next to you. Have them make sure your bow and arrow are level before you shoot. That will give you and idea how far off it is. The bow needs to be level to see where the bow is putting the arrow. If one cam is hitting sooner (bottom reason draws the arrow nock low) your arrow is gonna hit high.
