How can I keep my peep sight from twisting when I draw my bow? I had a nice doe at 10 yards but could not shoot because my peep sight twisted. Thanks for all the help ooo.gif

Your string has stretched and the peep will need to be repositioned. If this is a constant problem you may need new strings. If you can do that yourself than its no big deal.

If you take it to a shop they can offer more options. If you need new strings than you need them so that might help, but if your string is good and you just need to fine tune your peep position there are ways of straightening it out by crossing fibers from one side of the peep to the other to counteract twist. It means choosing individual strands out of a 16 strand string and should be done by a pro if you're not familiar.

I had same problem. Figure it was string stretch but was wrong. I just had to repostion my d-loop. It twist on your string if you shoot alot and just twisting it back to wear it started should do the trick. Good luck.

I know lots of people are going away from the rubber hose that attaches to the peep, but I have used one ever since they first came out and have NEVER had a problem with my peep not opening up. Needs to be changed every year or so but it always works. IMO, this is much easier that dickin' around with trying to seperate strings, etc.

Did I mention that it ALWAYS works? grin.gif

Donbo, I agree with you, I think that the odds of a hose breaking while drawing back on that buck are a lot lower than having the peep twist when it isn't attached. If you inspect the hose often, it is pretty reliable. If it starts cracking, I just cut that piece off and roll some more over it.

I like my No-Peep.

Better at dawn and dusk and no hose to break or peep to twist at the wrong moument.

Do you shoot a kisser? I shot that with my old bow, but went back to a peep with my knew one. I'm really tempted to go back to the kisser, it just seemed so simple & comfortable.

Readjust your string loop so that it rotates your peep in the right spot. If you don't use a loop and attach right at the string with your release then you need to either get a new string or readjust the peep in the string. There are a few no twist strings out there that are a good option if you need to replace your string.

If you are unsure how to fix it make sure you go to your pro shop and have them do it for you.

This is why I practice shooting looking beside my peep, for just this reason. You will not panic as much when you pull back on a deer and the peep is not right cause you practiced.

I agree with DonBo, never had a problem I have the rubber hose attached, and change it every year, or actually the pro shop does it for like $5-7 depends on who does it. it is like the cheapest maintenance you can do.

I also use the rubber hose and have never had a problem with it. Like others have said change it yearly so there are no worries.

      Any new hot jigs coming out yet?

      for some reason my replies got deleted? but yes, you guys are right, the startup on the ac unit is double the running watts; also coleman mach got back to me about the thermostats, he said they're all compatible to run off of thermstats, you would need to install a control box in he unit so it can communicate with the thermostat

      Cliff thanks for the updates.  Do you think the hatch will be done by next weekend?

      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think.
