  • I just bought a new bow and am currently sighting it in. When i shoot i keep shooting far left but my dad and brother keep shoot

    I just bought a new bow and am currently sighting it in. When i shoot i keep shooting far left but my dad and brother keep shooting far right. Why is that?

    I assume you mean you are shooting the same bow. In that case, everybody shoots differently. Unless the bow is tuned for you, you are more than likely going to shoot it differently. You probably give it different torque than they do or your draw lengths are different. Something along those lines.

      Different draw length, anchoring point, grip, ect. can all be reasons why you guys are hitting different spots.

        You should site the bow to your shooting, no one else. Every one has a different draw length, achor point, torgue. Practice your release and follow through, dont worry where everyone else is hitting. Only your shots are the ones you should worry about.

          Apparantly something is amiss.............. Have you tuned the bow or had an experienced archer or shop tune it for you? When you look down the string and align your nocked arrow with the string do the sight pins line up as well or are they to the left or right? Is your arrow weight right for the poundage your shooting? Is the bows draw length suitable for you? Do you use a kisser button to make sure your anchor is the exact upon each shot? These are a few things you should consider. Keep us posted.
