Bow tune up.......
« on: July 27, 2013, 10:44:16 PM »
Ok so i made a post on here the other day about the importance of draw length. Well i measured me a few times and the bow a few times and come to the assumption im set at the right draw length. But decided to add a kisser button ( never used one before figured i would try it out) and it was a REALLY good idea. But after adding the kisser i had to reposition my peep. Once i got that done i french tuned my bow which is like thewalk back tune but shorter. With less flaws. And began to resight my bow since i moved my peep. Well before i did all this i had a 10 20 30 40 yard pin. And they were pretty accurate i could put 6 arrows within a pie plate. Now my 10 yard pin is good from 10 and 20 yards. ( the need for a 20 yard pin is obsolete) idk how moving the peep could change that. But if you dont have a kisser i strongly advise you to add one it helps me shoot with the same form every time. And therefore increasing my accuracy. Today i went from 6 arrows in a pie plate at 20 yards to 9 arrows in the bottom of a solo cup at 20 yards. I cant wait to shoot more tomorrow now.

Great job, Dustin!!   You got 'er "fine tuned" now!!   Never used a kisser button but, as you know, it's all about being able to have the exact same form and technique every time and a kisser does help in that.    I felt the same way after installing my first Peep Eliminator!!    I'm glad the kisser helps you and I feel sorry for the deer in your neck of the woods!!!!!      Best of luck this fall!

Sounds like some great shooting. It's great when you find that "little" thing that makes a big difference in groups.

Consistency is everything... in form, arrows, your bow, everything. A kisser button is a great way to make sure you are anchored almost exactly the same each time you draw. The increase in your group is definitely attributed to the kisser button. Not having a kisser is much like having a slightly loose screw on an iron site so it's never quite the same each time you shoot.

Nice shooting!  @--0--0123

 You might consider joining one of those state management hunt programs (out here it's called Master Hunter) with that kind of accuracy! Give you more hunting opportunities!

that's good shooting, Dustin,  just keep at it.   when I used to bow hunt, I had my bow set up with a string peep sight and one pin, set for 25 yds.  I could put 6 arrows in a 3" group, and dented my arrows quite a number of times.
