A compound bow is a type of bow that uses a mechanism of pulleys and cables to increase its efficiency and accuracy, allowing the archer to launch arrows at a higher speed and with greater precision. While a peep sight can make aiming much easier, it is still possible to aim a compound bow without one. With practice, anyone can become skilled at accurately aiming and shooting a compound bow without a peep sight.
