    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.
