    My son and I are new to shooting. I recently got him a sight. It was install on a bear warrior 2 bow. He finger shoots and I have the sight adjusted all the way down. The arrows keep going into the ground. We tried lowering his anchor to his jaw bone and still no luck. Any ideas???

    what distance is he shooting. At 25# and those practice arrows which most are in the 400 plus grn range. He probably wont reach the target at 15 or 20 yds. I bought my son some pse desprados youth arrows and cut to length. He shoots 25# also with pse nova jr. he can now hit the target at 15yds. had some issue as your son. And seeing how most begginer youth bows dont have multiple taps for sight height changing. You are left with what you got.

    Thanks he shoots to 10 yards. I'll have to get the arrow weight to see if they are too heavy. They are youth arrows.

    Ok one problem I see is that you don't want to lower his anchor point. If he is shooting fingers, you want his anchor with his point finger either at the corner of his mouth or into the bottom of his cheek bone. This with the sight set as low as you can get it at first. But a pic of the bow and how the sight is hooked would help to explain what else to do.
