ok this is almost pointless if he doesnt explain it, but if it is what I think it is which is a problem with peep turning, then I have had to twist it a couple times before

I always "pump" my string a couple of times before every shot - just to be sure the release is going to hold.

You take and turn the bow string a few times .While not letting it unwind.You push your bow hand foward.While pulling with the hand thats holding the bow string.And do it in a pumping motion.To make your peep come straight.[Later
