Peep Sight

Recommended Posts

Rippinlip

I have a peep sight on my string with the rubber hose, the rubber hose broke a few days ago right by the sight, so I just re-attached it and now it seems to have created a slight turn in my peep sight, possibly from the hose being shorter?

I have extra hose, but how do you determine how long of a piece do you need?

huh thats wierd you'd think that it would hold it straight even better because its more taunt. may be your peep slid a little on your string. this past spring my peep and upper serving for the peep were sliding up. that will affect the alignment of you peep, because of the string twist. see if the serving looked like it moved. is your bow shooting higher or lower now? maybe just a hair?

i dont think there is any real science to figuring length, just enough to pull on the peep.

hope you get it figured out!

Been shooting alot and have not had to adjust the sights at all.

Only thing is with the shorter hose and where it is attached, it seems to be pulling the front of it to the right slightly so my window seems smaller.

you shooting a right handed bow? if so maybe the fact that your cable guard is pushed right a little its drawing your peep a bit. also is it a small diameter or large diameter peep?

i could see how with a small dia. you would notice even the slightest cocking of the peep.

anyways i would just replace the hose, but leave it long and trim it until it draws the peep up even. even though it can be a pain in the rump to get that rubber hose on.

I had problems with the peep on my new bow, it would slide up, and the tube would keep coming off, but luckily where i got it used the liquid white out to make a small line on the peep and on the string, now i can tell if it moves, and how far.

What you want is at full draw you want the tube to be taught but up until then you want some slack in the tube so it doesn't pull on the string. The easiest way is to attach it to the peep and tie it off on the cable. Draw the bow and see when it starts to pull the tube tight. Hope that makes sense...

      Oh I forgot to mention is was b*#%hing cold.  Minus 33 Saturday morning and -36 on Sunday morning.  We had to leave one sled behind at the cabin on Saturday and it took forever to get the Solo started on the auger.  Maybe time for an electric.     Nice niece catching day Pro-V!!!

      more slush for you!!!

      My niece got a 28" walleye and a 44" sturgeon the same day a couple days ago.

      That is what we experienced too.  Three of us were up, fished Thurs, Fri, and Sat.  Lots of little ones, sniffers, the type that keep you busy, wear your arm out jigging on.  We only kept 15" eyes and 14" sauger or better and ended up just short of our limit.  Many 14" eyes released along with 13" sauger.  Others indicated a tough bite as well.  There was one group in the cleaning shack that had some, maybe a 1/4th of their catch, in the 16 to 19 inch range.  We fish with fatheads and some frozen emeralds.  Ice thickness-wise, the auger head was just above the shavings pile, so the ice is growing quickly.  Snow on the lake is hard.  Good Luck.

      😫 boy i feel the love here!!!!!!!! interseted to hear what this additional snow did to the lakes!!!!

      That is correct.  We were just up at LOW out of Zippel Bay and as far as we could tell, eveybody up there was out of live shiners.  We were able to stop on the way and pick up live emerald shiners @ Big Dicks Bait Shop in Kelliher.  This was on the 17th, so if you go that route, I'd call first to make sure they still had any.  Fishing was a little slow for us, but it was right when the cold front came screaming in, good luck!

      Thanks for reply, problem is red door isnt letting anyone with wheel house or skid house out to the flat or past the heave,yet. So everyone is kind of pilled up on the first/second breaks. I am thinking once they start allowing more travel it will start to thin out by me. I may give it another week or so and see how it looks.

      Yeah, you better stay home, smurfy. 😉 Probably catch more. 😀  We got  a lot here too. NOT!!!  2 1/2 - 3" at most

      The key is emerald shiners. The ones you can get in the cities are not the same as emeralds up there. Frozen ones work great for jigging.

      Well I was out off the edge of a mud flat in 32 ft in a great spot away from People. 4 fish Friday through last Sunday. Missed a couple others. Really nice fish. 25 inches was the smallest.  It was a tough bite. I would say maybe a little deeper and I think a big key IMO is getting away from the groups.
