  1. Bow sights pins addition question

    General Archery Discussion
    Hi folks, I have an interesting question here: "how can I add sights pins to my existing bow sight" - "proposition: has anyone tried tying some kind of thin wire vertically on the bow sight? Ideally this thin wire would have some tiny movable beads that can be adjusted in height for range" So I...
  2. Is a Rangefinder a good investment for indoor practice range or hunting?

    General Archery Discussion
    I keep seeing a number of Pros take out their rangefinders to determine yardage to target. Both my compound bows have a range adjustment for different yardage. I’m just not familiar with these types of optics and was wondering what some of you use and maybe suggest a model, or maybe even which...

  6. 30# at 30 yards

    Traditional Archery
    Hey guys back again. Been getting pretty consistent at 20 yds with my little Bear Titan 30# bow, so decided to pace out another 10. Well at 30 yds I can hit the broadside of the barn, but not the target in front of it. The arrows just seem to catch the wind (just light breeze today) and go a...
  7. sight pin yardage

    Western Bowhunting Gallery
    What do you Western hunters set your pins at? I can't seem to get closer than 40 yds. I hunt all spot and stalk and usually the animals around here seem to run off, stop at 60-80 yds then stand there tempting me. I'm thinking about setting at 30,40,50,60,70 or 35,45,55,65,75, any thoughts? Right...
  8. Sight Pin Yardage Chart

    General Archery Discussion
    I bought a pin sight over the weekend to shoot MBR/HC and I've overheard quite a few ways to set the pin yardages. I did a search a while ago and saw numerous yardages across multiple posts. Having a little extra time at work today ;), I found as many posts as I could and set it all up in a...

  10. Tips on judging yardage..I need some

    General Archery Discussion
    I know the toughest part of 3-d tournaments is judging yardage, but I really stink at it. Any tips would be helpful I can't believe these pros can judge to within 1/2 a yard and closer on these long range targets. Anyone else have trouble and how do you work on it? Thanks

  14. Question for HHA Sight users

    General Archery Discussion
    I have an HHA 5019 and I am about to put new strings on my bow. I was just curious if anyone with an HHA sight had to change the yardage tape when they put new strings on their bow? Increase in FPS maybe? Thanks
