When printing sight tapes for the first time is there a way to cross check the tape prior to attaching it to the sight, when there is no previous tape to reference it too.

And being new to this part of The Archery Program on the sight tapes what are the numbers for that are at the bottom of the tape. Typically a five digit number?

You should have sighted in your bow at 20 yards already: cause you need the peep to pin measurement with the sight at 20.

So you line up the tape with the 20 yard mark you already have.

The number at the bottom, LOL (sorry), is the speed of your bow...

Most sights usually come with a factory tape or scale. You probably used this to get your yardage "marks" that you entered into the program.

Set the sight to one of the marks...I generally use the middle mark if I used three to generate the tape. Align the yardage on the tape as close to the pointer as possible. The pointer is moveable, so you don't have to be exact.

When you shoot some sight in arrows, you can make your final adjustments to the pointer...just loosen the nut holding the pointer in place and move it to the yardage you're shooting.
