I started shooting a new bow this season. I’m shooting the Martin Onza III; it was a gift I received from Martin Archery. It’s the identical bow many pros have taken for the last couple of years. I’m in my to fine tune it in. . I started placing my bow and got ready to sight it in. He fixed me up with a new sight, stabilizer, arrows, hints, the works. I had to sight the bow .
Sighting in a bow is in fact pretty simple, just take your time doing it. I’ve done it so much it is now second nature.
Before I even begin shooting my bow to sight it in, I use a fast way to save a little time and effort which works really well. Something which will save me plenty of time in the scope is pre-setting the pins – left and right, also placing them up and down.
To find the pins set left and right before I start shooting I will attempt to place them with the string and arrow rest. I align my attention directly behind the series so seems to line up right down the middle.
The next step before I begin shooting targets is to find the pin in the most effective vertical, (the down and up ), position I am searching for. I place the 20 yard pin . After this pin is sighted from others seem to fall in place pretty straightforward.
The 20 yard pin on many new bows are only about flat with the top hole of the sight bracket position. So I move the 20 yard pin right at precisely the identical place as the top hole for mounting the sight. That should put it fairly near the sweet spot I am searching for.
If you are shooting into the right of your goal, you transfer your pin to the right, if you shooting beneath your goal, move your pin down a bit, etc.. Since I pre-set my pins prior to sighting in the bow, I’m in the ballpark of where I need to be.
I only make adjustments in tiny increments. According to people in the know, at 20 yards 1/8 of an inch alteration at the launch point can move your arrow over 12 inches in the point of impact. Now you don’t need to be a physicist to figure out this stuff. Just be patient and it’ll work!
It is not rocket science. If you will shoot longer distances, then you’d want to move among the hooks right underneath the 20 yard pin you just put. That will raise the bow somewhat when planning and compensate for the fall of the arrow . Each bow will differ depending on the speed and kinetic energy generated by the bow. When moving back to state 30 yards, you may carefully repeat the same procedure you did at 20 yards. Adjust the sight so. That is sighting in a bow at summary. It is nothing overpowering, just pay close attention to what you’re doing and you’ll get it done. Be patient when doing so; think, it will come to you and make sense when you put it into practice.
