    peep sights

    ok guys i am new to bow shooting and my dad gave me his bow. been shooting everyday trying to get ready. My question is what size peeps are you guys using? Mine seems rather large and I am thinking that if i get a smaller one it may help me dial it in. let me know what you guys think. Thanks

    What kind of hunting do you primarily do? If you are hunting in low light conditions much, those large diameter peeps can be invaluable!

    i am going to be deer hunting for now and possibly elk in the future and everything else as I get more comfortable. I live in Wyoming and I guess I am going to be hunting at all times of the day. It just seems that mine is huge and I know when I shoot ghost rings on a rifle that it is more accurate using a smaller peep. I am a gun guy and am trying to use some of the principles I know in that aspect as a guide to be better and more accurate with a bow. I have been shooting for about a month and am out to 25 yards consistently. dead on at 15.

    I don't think that the size of your peep matters as much as the size of your sight pins when it comes to accuracy. I had .019 pins and had a problem with keeping accurate at farther distances. I switched to .010 sized pins witch cover up less of my target at farther range making me more accurate. Kind of like having a thick reticle on your scope, its harder to be very accurate when the whole target is covered up.

    Just my opinion I like small peeps because it is easier for me to line up my sights and peep. I agree with Reflex in that at low light you can see more with large peeps

    I don't know what size my peep is, but I like to have it just big enough that I can only see the white ring around the outside of my pin guard. I also think that bright, small diameter pins are a more important factor that peep size itself.
