Hindsight questions


Recommended Posts

I can"t seem to aim/hit a target with a peep sight. So after reading a bowhunting mag, found Hindsight- a bow sight/rifle sight idea combo. Has anyone had any experience with these? I am a beginner with limited funds/experience. Thanks in advance.

You could also look into an anchor sight. I use one without a peep and my groups tightened up. It helps control hand torque issues that you don't see without one.

I just googled the product and find it very interesting. As an engineer, solving problems generally involve correcting it at the root of the problem. If your eyesight won't permit a peep, then this might be just the ticket. I had not heard of this device, so I'm gonig to spend a little time studying the product as it might be the low light solution that I've been looking for.

I think anchor sight has a guarantee that if you dont like it return it for a full refund but dont quote me on that. When you use it for a while it seems you barely have to peek at it. Plus if you have a problem lining it up next season something change, whether it being anchor, nock, grip, bent sight or rest, shooting with gloves or mask on. Your consistency of anchor point is critical in accuaraccy.

I have the Hind- site set up on the wife & Grandkids bows with single pin front sites, also for the guys I mentor into bow hunting.

I don’t use a peep site I have the Compound bow Rifle Sight. With Trophy Ridge 5 pin vertical sights. Just love it, have improved my groups and added 10 more yards of distance with confidence, increased sight picture. I also have the Hind- site, used it for many years,. Have several bows set up with it.

I put this on my bow a couple years ago after trying all kinds of different sights, anchors, peeps etc. I always had problems grouping beyond 20 yards. I can say w/o doubt this sight system works for me and I have nice groupings out to 40 yards now. Maybe its something else in my form but I am happy with the sight..

Unless your problem with the peep is vision-related, I would also say that the problem is related to your form or possibly target panic with trying to line things up within the small aperture of a peep and sight housing.

If the hindsight helps you then I think that's the number one thing. However, I think if its a form issue, then finding the root of the problem is the best course.

If its eye related, are you cross-dominant between your eye and shooting hand?

Just throwing out ideas.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
