    I'm unsure whether I should be shooting with a multi-pin sight or a single-pin sight on my bow. How can I know which is best for me? -J. Emersen, via e-mail

    Each sight has it own advantages and disadvantages. If you're hunting open plains game like antelope, you'll be forced to shoot a multi-pin setup. Stacking pins lets you shoot longer distances more accurately. The disadvantage is pin confusion. Many animals have been given a reprieve by archers who rush to aim and line up the shot with the wrong pin. On the other hand, for those hunters in tight canopies (typically Southern tree-standers) with shots not exceeding 30 yards, a single-pin setup is best. A single pin eliminates confusion when the moment of truth arrives. Several manufacturers offer single-pin sliding sights. Move the pin to adjust for longer or shorter shots.

      Multi pin sights a perfect and easy to use for typical bowhunting. It is the most common type of sight. Single pinned sights are for more advanced shooters. I'd buy a multi pin sight, they're great.

        I have been using a multi pin sight for over 4 years.I love being able to not worry about adjusting anything while in the heat of the moment. I would say go with the multi pin sight, its easy to see your pins and its very easy to sight in.

              Yep to all that. Just add the obvious that you need to know the range too.
