    To glue or not glue

    I have seen were bowhunters put stickers of 20&40&60 on their bow sights how do you keep them on the sight pins if you glue them what happens to the pins when you replace the stickers

    I have a 5 pin spothog set at 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and have no need for stickers to remind me what's what. Just get in the habit of counting pins.

    I agree with packer58. Know your pins. A good way to practice is to shoot from a different distance every time you go pull your arrows from the target. Mix it up; for example: shoot from 20, then 50, then 30, then 60, then 40. Another good exercise, once you are dialed in, is to pull your arrows, walk away to a random distance, turn, range and shoot, continue walking away, turn, range and shoot, repeat. This is a really good exercise, for anyone, in making adjustments for in-between yardages. Those animals seldom arrive at the exact distance of our pins. Practice, practice, practice.

    I shoot a 7 pin Spot Hogg "Hogg It" sight. I remember what my middle pin is so I can quickly acquire the yards for the shot. So in my case my middle pin is green and it is 50 yards at a .029 size. My 60+ yard pins are smaller .010 so this also helps me know where my longer range pins are. I hope this makes sense.

    I have the 7 pin site and felt the same way as the other posters do until I got buck fever on an antelope buck. My ability to count pins while at full draw on a buck/bull is nonexistent. I simply used white model paint and put a small 3 on 30 skipping the 20. Then skip 40 and put a 5 on 50 then skip 60 and put a 7 on 70. This helped me a lot. Counting pins is easy when thumping targets but everything changes when I get in the field. Just my two cents.

    I've had mine now for a few years. Can't say I really use them anymore during the heat of the moment on a hunt. Now it's more of a convenience thing when I'm at the range. But they're there if I need them.

    I glued mine with some Goat Tuff and have not had to replace them in the 2-3 years they have been on.

    its actually from a label maker, the kind that you can peel off and stick to things, except I just left it together and didn't peel it off then put a dab of Goat Tuff. Seemed to work, haven't had one come off yet. I think if it was regular paper it would have problems with the weather and moisture.

    If you know someone in the electrical trades, you can have them make you some small labels with their label maker. They have some that are weather resistant for use with circuit identification in the field.
