Moveable sights?

Recommended Posts

metrojoe

Just looking for some input on moveable sights. I'm thinking of shooting more 3D shoots this summer and I'm interested in hearing what other shooters recommend.

Consider what class you're going to shoot before picking an adjustable sight. Or, are you considering shooting non-competitive but still want to use an adjustable sight? I think it's an excellent way to shoot, especially w/longer distances. Using multiple pins works nicely but having the same pin/aperature provides confidence and continuity in aiming on each shot.

I enjoy shooting longer distances and w/one adjustable pin/aperature, vs. buying multiple pins, as it makes shooting shorter distances that much easier.

One more thing to consider is if you are going to use it for hunting, it can become tough if your deer are moving and move to distances where making an adjustment is required. Often times you can set it where it shoots a little high at, say, 20yds and a little low at 30yds. If you're comfortable w/that you'll be fine.

Good luck and have fun w/the 3D's.

Thanks for the info. At this point it would only be for fun, but if I'm going to use an aid I figure I might as well take full advantage. My current setup is one pin set for 20 yards. Most of my stands only allow me to shoot out to 25 or 30 yards and in most cases my shots are 20 yards or less. I found multiple pins set at 20, 30, and 40 yards was just to cluttered. 3D shoots are something new to me and for the time being I may just add a 40 yard pin to my current setup. I'm mainly worried about the durability of moveable sights, especially while hunting. Maybe I'll need 2 bows? crazy.gif

If your not worried about winning or anything, go ahead and give it a try. They are kind of fun. I used one for a couple of years. Dial it in and set the pin where you want it to hit... You still have to judge distance correctly! And you still have to exicute the shot.

I use a 3 pin adjustable sight from HHA- I love it! However, DD hit the nail on the head- still gotta know how far away the target is and still gotta make a good shot. Also, you'll have spend a good deal of time getting it set up right. Software from places like Software For Archers will help a great deal, but you'll have to do some serious messing with it to get it perfect.

The one thing you really have to be carefull with is keeping your anchor point consistant. I had a bit of a time wiht it. Because you change your pin locations your eye has a tendancy to center the pin in the peep, which if your sight pin is moving then your anchor is changing... You could be spot on at 30 yards one day, and the next it would be 3" low?

Just something to keep thinking about.. try and do your best to keep the anchor consistant.. and you should be good to go.

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
