Are you confident in your shot?\u00a0 I mean really, truly confident? If you\u2019re questioning yourself even a little bit, here\u2019s a different method to use for sighting in your bow.\u00a0 It\u2019s a faster, easier, and more accurate way to sight in your bow.Rather than trying to hover over the top of an \u201cX\u201d on an archery target, use a vertical and horizontal line to hone in your bow sight quickly and effectively.\u00a0 By aiming at lines rather than a bull\u2019s-eye you focus on one axis at a time and by the time you\u2019re done, you\u2019ll be able to drive tacks with your bow and arrow.Step 1:Using a level, place a piece of tape perfectly vertical on the target.\u00a0 Then, place another piece of tape running perfectly horizontal. \u00a0You can also mark these lines on paper and pin them to your target.A block style target works the best for this method of sighting in a bow.\u00a0Step 2:Make sure you mark your arrows so you know if you have a bad one in the bunch.\u00a0 If one arrow is off target every time you know it\u2019s not you, but the arrow.Numbering the fletchings with a sharpie is an easy way to differentiate your arrows.Step 3:Start by standing 5-yards from the target to make sure you will hit it with your first shots. Sight in your left and right by aiming at the vertical tape or line.\u00a0 Shoot 3-5 arrows at the vertical line to gauge whether you need to move your pin to the left or the right.\u00a0 Aim just above or below the previous arrow so you can easily tell which way your bow sight needs to be adjusted.\u00a0 Repeat until all arrows are hitting the center of the tape or line.Stand close to the target on your first few shots to ensure you are hitting close to the line.Which way to move your pin?Follow your arrow \u2013 if you hit left of the tape, move your site left (as if you were looking through it); if you hit right, move the sight to the right.After my first four arrows, it was clear that the sight needed to be adjusted to the left. Moving the sight left will cause you to bring your bow to the right when aiming.After three adjustments I finally was hitting dead center of the tape – my left and rights were set.Step 4:Take a shot from 5-yards while aiming at the horizontal line using your top pin.\u00a0 If it\u2019s more than 6 inches from the line, adjust the entire sight housing until the upper pin is hitting somewhat close to the line \u2013 this will make it easier when you move out to 20-yards.\u00a0 Don\u2019t spend too much time getting this perfect because you will be adjusting the pin in the next step.\u00a0 This is simply a precautionary step to ensure you\u2019ll be hitting the target at 20-yards.Step 5:Stand 20-yards from the target (or wherever you want your first pin set at) and aim at the horizontal line using your top pin.\u00a0 Adjust your pin or sight housing until all arrows are hitting the center of the tape or line.The first pin is the only pin you can adjust by moving the entire sight housing.\u00a0 Once you have one pin locked in, the other pins must be adjusted by moving each one separately.Use a rangefinder to identify the distances you want to set your pins for optimum accuracy. \u00a0Here I’m standing at 20-yards to sight in my top pin.Which way to move your pin?Follow your arrow \u2013 if you hit above of the tape, move your site\/pin up (as if you were looking through it); if you hit low, move the sight to the down.After the first round of shots from 20-yards, it was clear the sight needed to be adjusted down in order to bring my arrows up. You’ll notice the arrow to the right is quite a bit lower than the others; this was a result of\u00a0fatigue. \u00a0Be sure to take as much rest as you need to make consistent shots, even it means spreading out the sight in process over several days.After an adjustment,\u00a0my 20-yard pin is hitting right where it needs to be. \u00a0Time to back up and repeat for my 30, 40, and 50-yard pins.Step 6:Repeat the process of step 5 using your next pin down and standing at the next desired distance, most likely 30 yards.\u00a0 Then move out to 40 yards and so on.Notice how the 20-yard pin is near the top in order to leave room for the rest of the pins.Step 7:Double check your left and rights at a further distance by aiming at the vertical tape again.\u00a0 Any slight adjustments you may not have noticed at 5-yards will be magnified at 20, 30, and 40-yards.\u00a0 Once the fine tuning is done and you\u2019re hitting the vertical and horizontal tape lines consistently, you should be ready for the woods.\u00a0 Double check by aiming at a 3-D target or a 10-Ring target\u2026I think you\u2019ll be surprised at how much more accurate your shots have become and how much tighter your groups are after\u00a0using this method to sight in your bow.
