    set your rest so the arrow is @ 90* when nocked. Center your pins in the peep. And shoot a 3 shot group. Adjust from there. It could be that everything is off. Nock point,kisser peep could all be to high...but once your arrow is nocked at 90* evertyhing else should fall into place.

    The best way to adjust a peep is,
    1.close your eyes,
    2.draw the bow back and anchor the bow level
    3. open your eyes you should be able to see through the peep.

    That is a Great tip, it's a good way to find the natural spot for you. Keeps you from leaning down and in to the string searching for the sight. GD...I read what happened to you. Don't know you from Adam but I hope you are well on your way to recovery. I hope the hardship on your family is bearable and I hope those responsible for your pain pay their just due. get well...
