I am shooting a 2006 Bowtech Tributte 70# and 29”
I have shot between 1.000 and 2.000 shots trough it.
My groups are pretty good up to 60 yds.
Today, while practicing, with field points, (no broadhead) my groups moved to the right about 3” at 20 yds.
My sights and rest (WB) doesn’t seem to have moved at all.
Any ideas of what might have happen????

I feel your pain....

I shoot a Trykon (29/67/80) about 2000 shots to date and up until a couple days ago I was drilling Xs at 20 yards. Now my groupings are about 2 inches low and to the right 2 inches. Nothing seems to correct it. I am frustrated beyond belief.

I hope someone gives you an answer so I can try it.

probably grip

That has happened to me several times and i always changed something on my bow when it was me the whole time.I put on a timberline no peep on a few months ago and it didn't work out for me in the no peep sense it does tell you if you are torqueing your bow even a little and a used one is only about 30 dollars

RH shooter? LH shooter?

shoot with a release.
Which release? Wrist strap? Thumb trigger? Hinge rotational (triggerless)?

Shoot with a d-loop? Shoot with a rope? Shoot directly off the string?


If your sights did not move,
then try a quick walkback tune.

Using your 20 yd pin,
stand 20 yds away from the 50 yd target. Fire one arrow.

Back away to 30 yds away from the 50 yd target. Fire another arrow.

Back up to 50 yds away from the 50 yd target. Fire the 3rd arrow.

If the arrows are all in a straight line up and down,
then your centershot is correct.

If the arrows are all directly under the bulls eye in a straight line,
then you windage on the pin guard is also correct.

If the arrows all miss the 50 yd bullseye,
in a vertical line, but the vertical string of arrows miss the bullseye
by 3-inches to the right, then your pin guard (the entire assembly including the pins)
moved.

problem

Once you get everything dialed in (paper,walkback,string shot in,ect..) I allways put a mark on my rest & sight anywhere it could move so I'll know for sure if it has. Also make sure you haven't changed the way your gripping the bow. If you have a grip that's prone to torquing even the slightest change can sometimes be noticed. Good luck.

I think I found my problem......

The tubing on my peep has stretched (in fact broke today) to the point that the peep was not fully rotating. It appears that I was "adjusting" my bow hand to compensate for the slight "off" peep rotation resulting in bad shot placement.

N&B.....does that make sense to you?????

Thanks
