Still could be something in the form but perhaps it's not going to go back, we do change over time.  ;-D     At this point I would adjust the sights rather than training yourself to aim elsewhere.   If your form does return to where it was previously you can adjust accordingly.

It could also be something else such as cable stretch or something in the limbs.  As long as you are consistent, I would just roll with it.

I sure hope you get this fixed.  One thing that happened to me was my field points would hit dead center on the target and the broadheads were hitting about 6 inches high.  This is where I DON'T trust ALL bowshops.  The owner told me must be bad broadheads and sold me some new ones.  While they did hit closer they were still off.

What I found was I adjusted my rest down just a little.  Talking about 1/32 of an inch here.  While my field points were almost unchanged by this adjustment my broadheads did drop.  I learned that broadheads CAN be affected more then field points by these adjustments.  This is what the "tuning" is all about.  I was able to get the broadheads to hit where the field points were and all was much better.

I don't know if this pertains to you at all but it might be worth trying something like lowering the rest and moving it slightly to the left.  ONLY do that if you mark where everything is first so you can go back if you need to.  Also I would only do this if it seems that the farther out you go the more high and right the arrow hits.

Try closing your eyes and then Drawing your bow. Anchor and hold with your eyes closed. When you feel like everything is in place open your eyes.  See then if you have to move your head much to adjust to your peep sight and center your sight ring.  If it is way off I would start over and take it the bow shop to reset your peep. Then you will have to re-adjust your sights from there.  If everything is pretty well inline and in place then simply adjust your sights a little.  Could be a 5 min fix. Could be an alignment issue.

These are all good ideas.  You can get WAY more complicated but try the old K.I.S.S. theory before you dive off in to the more complicated ideas.  Could it be something as simple as your rest/sights were bumped over the off season?  It wouldn't take much to throw you high and right.  Just curious.

If you have worked on your form and practiced like you say, I would say its time to move the pin...

Well i have it figured out thanks to one of my hunting partner.  Asked him to come by and watch me shoot.  He is way better than me with a bow and he diagnosed me with Tightis Griposis.  The friends here that told me to lighten my grip were dead on.  I didn't realize i was gripping as tight as I was. When I put that in the forefront of my concentration it was problem solved.  Thanks you all for your input.
confidence is back now.  We'll see if it translates to the real deal soon.

If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic, you're really just doin 'em a favor!
