  • Who shoots with both eyes open

    I was shooting my bow tonight getting it sighted in, then just thought I would try shooting with both eyes open and WOW, what a difference. Never in my life have I shot so consistent. Hitting the bullseye and my groups are so tight. I mean Ive had tight groups and bullseye shots, but the consistency is 10 fold.

      I shoot both eyes open, more field of view that way.

              I just started this year. I still instinctively close one eye after drawing. I do like being able to see a wider field of vision.

                lol same here...kinda like I was told focus on your target and not your pin. Been doing that since I was 12 and don't have a clue if it is correct but 22yrs later it still works for me.

                  I have been trying to train myself to shoot with both eyes open...but I carry a handgun and rifle for a living so naturally I close an eye!! It's work to keep both eyes open but I like it when I do it!!

                    Always have.

                    Had a Zen moment a few years ago, suddenly everything became clear and I thought I found the "right" way to shoot. Neighbor wasn't to impressed with arrow in his backyard. Luckily his work car wasn't parked in its usaul spot.

                      Yep have been for years. To me it feels like it is easier seems like I can "feel" my bow isnt level. Which I think is a by product of a better field of view. I had a buddy try it a couple years ago and he missed a 4'x4' target at 10 yards. Still dont know how he did it.lmao

                            I always shot with left eye closed, till I read one of these threads about both eyes open. I now shoot with both eyes open and accuracy has improved a bit, but the nicest part is a better view of the arrows flight and impact. This little improvement has been one of the best tips I've learned from the forum. It only took a few minutes to make this adjustment into routine.
