    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.

    Only way I can shoot with both eyes open is if the lighting conditions are perfect. Indoors or in low light or bright sunlight, I have to close my left eye.

    If you look at the right side of your string almost have the string on the vertical line of your target you can see the whole target and your level (3rd axis) in the same view. A archery pro showed me this 5 years ago and i haven't looked back. I am now trying to find an anchor point on my face or jaw line to get rid of the kisser. For right handed

    This is interesting!
    By the way, eliminate the peep, give a small increase in speed (no weight on the string).
    I personally shoot with both eyes open eb. years, my strategy is to have a great peep (1/4) aligned as possible with the circle of the sight. This to be always in repetitive firing. Need to work on the distance between pins and peep sight, (inside diameter of the peep, outside diameter of circle) ...
    To be able to eliminate the peep, I think it's the state of the art in the shot (among other things I can not use the bubble, Cat Bowhunter Unlimited).

    Same here. It is a strugle being a firearms instructor, teaching to focus on the front sight of a pistol and blur your target... Then doing what i really love, shooting a bow and doing just the opposite....
