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.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
