Last night we all gathered at my parents house to shoot our bows and eat pizza. The night started out a little rough for me! I got my bow out, put my arm guard and release on and selected the arrows I would be shooting. I set up 20 yards away from the target and pulled back. While I was at full draw I looked through my peep sight to aim at the target and realized that something was missing; my sights had fallen off of my bow. You can imagine the horror as I exclaimed to everyone that my sights were missing. I am just glad thet Garrett, Jason and Tim didn’t shoot any errant arrows as they busted up laughing at my dilemma. I looked over to my bow case and somehow my sights had fallen off of my bow, and were laying in my bow case. I attached my sights again, and began adjusting my bow. This is something I do not like to do less than 2 weeks before the opener. Luckily I only had to adjust them left to right, and I only shattered one arrow in the process. I got sighted in, and finished the night fairly confident in my shooting. I am just glad that I didn’t have this problem on the opener of the deer hunt. I can only imagine how mad I would be as I pull back on a nice buck and realize that my sights are missing.
Here is my tip for the day: Make sure your sights are secure and tightly fastened to your bow!
