    How many pins do you use on your bow sight?Why?

  • #2
    FIVE but the fifth is useless it'd have to be below the pin housing to be sighted in. Mostly I have 'em for 3D.

      4, 15, 30, 45, AND 60 YARDS.

        1 but its an ajustable sight... problem is I dont have a range finder so I'm left guessing.

            I practice and hunt with 1 pin. You get to know your bow quickly most bows that shoot over 260fps will do well with this set up i don't ever shoot over 40 yards lets keep it ethical the animals we harvest deserve it.

              I used to use 18, 25 and 35, but if I get back into bow hunting I may go down to two also. 15yd and 30yd. In between I think I can adjust.

                Four. Fifth is too low on my new sight. Used to setup at 15, 25, etc. but switched to 20, 30, etc. last season.

                  2 I can shoot my Mathews out to 40 yards with 2 pins one at 20 on at 40 and I could shoot out to 50 with just a little elevation, If MY skills would allow it.

                      I don't use the 45 yd pin in hunting situations, but if i was hunting a field, i can see where i might. i do practice it.

                        3 pins for hunting in the East where a long shot will be 35 yards.
                        5 pins when I hunt out West where a long shot will be 60 yds.

                        I have to work very hard to get comfortable at 60 yds.

                            3- 20, 30, 40. Thats with the sight that came on the bow. Thinking of getting something different.

                                Never did like Graham. He just looks cheesy to me.

                                Did appreciate what Graham did for...

                                I have blocked several that do not post anything worth reading, off topic wrong information, or pivoting on a thread.
                                The site is much more enjoyable...
