    Well, I shoot with one eye open, but some people use both eyes. I would use whatever is comfortable. Happy Hunting!

      It depends on which eye is dominant, if your dominant eye is the same as your dominant hand you can shoot with both eyes open. My dominant eye and dominant hand are opposite so I have to close one eye or else I can't hit anything. Good Luck!

        Having both eyes open gives you lots of advantages and can be learned in a matter of a few days of heavy shooting.

          You get a larger field of view shooting with both eyes open, but it has to be second nature to you, with practice it can be done with time spent at the range like Ishi said.

              bowling,tennis,or baseball you always use both eyes. So why use only one while shooting?although you concentrate with one eye. both eyes allow for better depth perception and quicker target pickup.

                I started using one eye becuase thats what my dad did, then i tried both eyes. Its does help with the gerneral field of sight, but for me it does help to switch on and off, just becuase at longer distances my pins get to blurry to be acurate.

                  I usually use both eyes, although I have used one for hardcore target shooting, as it forces you to concentrate harder. I never use one for hunting though, too restricting.
