One eye only. Sometimes, my shooting looks like no eyes open though. lol
both eyes with pins...one eye with scope.
I shoot with both open although I'm left eye dominant shooting right handed.

I am something of what bfisher replied. I am left handed, left eye dominent and shoot right handed. Still, once I get my eyes and brain working together I can shoot with my left sort of squinting. I initially sight with my right eye and let the left eye squint some.
Okay, I am just weird. I shoot pistols, rifles and shotguns left hand and my eyes are wide open. I was a close the off eye guy until I spoke with a firearms shooting coach. His instruction was pretty simple; "God gave you two eyes, use them." Sure enough my Trap Shooting went to the top at the clubs I shot at. It was no different with shooting pistols or rifles with iron sights, both eyes wide open.
For bow shooter of the same eye/hand I'd give the same advice.
Another coaching thing; Don't think about this. As fast as you can, point your finger at something. If you do it and do it fast without thinking I've got $5 says you had both eyes open.
I am supposed to open my eyes knew I was doing it wrong...
Good question thou..I open or close what ever it takes to get the shot off.
Recurve.its eyey wide open staring down the target
The compound is the same until i get that peep and scope aligned.. Tell you the truth someone would have ta watch cause it realy depends.. i find my self doing both, heck some times i may even open an close the left more then once..
shot guns well once again eyes wide open but a scoped rifle its back to doing it both ways ...
It's all fun an games till you put that big boy on the ground.. now its time to get to work
