Steps to Aiming a Compound Bow with Pin Sights
1. Set Up and Sight in the Bow
Before you can begin aiming your compound bow you must make sure that it is properly set up and sighted in. Start by mounting your bow in a bow press and adjust the draw weight, draw length, and let-off. Once those have been adjusted, mount your pin sights and adjust the pins for a preferred sight radius. Be sure to have the anchor point of your bowstring aligned with the bow’s line of sight.
2. Make Sure the Bow is On Target
Once your bow is set up and sighted in, you need to make sure that it is correctly aligned with the target you are shooting at. To do this, align the arrow rest with the center sight pin, and then make sure the bow is aligned with the target. You should be able to see the target and the center pin at the same time. You should also make sure that the bow is not excessively canting, meaning that it is not angled to either the right or left.
3. Activate the Release Aid
Now that your bow is properly aligned with the target and your center sight pin is on the target, you can activate the release aid. This is the mechanism that releases the arrow from the bow when shooting. For general pin sight shooting, you will want to set the release aid in a “true aim” setting, meaning that the force settings are properly adjusted to ensure optimum accuracy. If you are shooting a more advanced system such as a drop-away arrow rest, you may need to adjust some of the settings as well.
4. Focus on the Pin and the Target
Next, you will want to focus on the pin and the target. To do this, place your finger on the trigger of the release aid, and focus your gaze on both the target and the center pin at the same time. You should keep your eye on both the target and the center pin until the arrow leaves the bow.
5. Ready to Shoot
After you have focused your gaze on both the target and the center pin, you are ready to shoot. Squeeze the trigger on the release aid until the arrow leaves the bow and is on its way towards the target. Once the arrow has left the bow, you will want to maintain your form and stance for about 30 seconds to ensure the utmost accuracy.
Aiming a compound bow with pin sights can be tricky at first, but with practice and a good eye, it can be achieved. It takes some additional setup, but with proper technique and form, you can shoot accurately with your compound bow. With these tips, you are now well on your way to shooting accurately with a pin sight compound bow.
