Creeping peep

Recommended Posts

MNice

While practicing today, my shots were creeping high by a few inches. I figured it out to be when I draw, and hold for 20-30 seconds, my peep creeps up the string. It's an angled peep with the rubber tied to the cables to align. Being a beginner I hope this question doesn't sound to dumb, but should the peep sight be tied in position? There is a serving like tie about an inch above, but I think it should be directly above to keep it locked in. Any thoughts??

Thanks!!

Yes, mine is tied directly above where the strings come back together. Or else you have the problem you are having...Good to notice that.

Thanks, I also just got off the phone with the cabela's archery dept. & the ties just slide up or down, with some force. I was able to slide them into position and it holds in place very well now.

Thanks again!

Mark your peep with a line of white-out on the plastic and string, then if (or when) it moves again you can easily see where it belongs.

(I think Deitz talked about this before.)

Are you talking about the peep hole itself moving or the other end, where it is tied to the cable? My peephole itself is set into the string in a loop so it never moves. The end tied to the cable has come untied occationally, but retying that knot itself should make no difference if you are off a little in terms of position on the cable, correct, as long as it pulls the peep on the string, which has not moved, open to view?

Yeppers, make sure you keep it tied in... and as posted above. White out the peep and string to see if it moves... even a really teeny move of a peep can mean a wounded or missed deer at 20 yards or less...

Deitz, sorry to be Mr. Specific... grin.gif But you mean the peep hole itself needs to always remain in the same spot, correct? If the rubber hose comes loose from the cable on the other end and I tie it back to the cable a little off of where it was tied, it should not make a difference as long as it stretches and pulls the peep hole to the fully open position, correct? The key is to make sure the peep hole itself is not moving, not where the other end of the rubber hose is tied?

Right, the rubber hose is simply to straighten the peep when you draw like you mentioned, the important part is to make sure the peep itself never moves.

Thanks stratosman and Deitz. That's what I thought. My peep appears to be solidly achored into the string itslef but I will doublecheck. What can really ruin your hunt is if the hose comes loose or the pulls off the peep and you have to adjust so I spend time first light goinv over my bow and inspecting all the components. I had the hose pop off the peep itself during target practice right when I was drawing so I always make sure it is seated tightly against the peep first thing now.

one of the best ways to tied the peep in, is too compress the limbs and take pressure off the string. then using one piece of serving thread, start at one end with a loop wining back over itself until close to the peep. run it thru the opening the peep makes in the string going past the peep and then start wining the string again. make about 7-8 wraps. take a second peice, loop it and start wining it along with the bowstring. make 7-8 wraps, run the end you are wining with thru the loop then use pliers and pull the loop back thru, this will pull the end with it. the peep should not move because both ends are pulling against each other.

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.
