    Noted. The bow I am shooting is ~38" overall, so the string angle is still sharp, enough so that my peep is probably 3" from my eye.

    May try a superball peep? Many sizes to choose from to get the one that fits.

    Good news::: I tied a nockset at my nose to have another reference point, focus intently on centering the peep, bending at the waist, and making strongs shots... RESULT= Cut my 42 yard groups in half. My up down was 2 1/2" over a 6 shot group, left right is about 3". I was focusing more on the up down tonight, so I know I let the bubble wonder a little. Just have to get the two going together and should be able to tighten my 42 yard groups a bit more

    (42 yards is the farthest I have available to shoot where I live)

    THANKS for ALL the help

    I'm shooting a 41 ATA bow. Anchor point has alot to do with it too. If you shoot a long release your draw will be shorter and string further away from your eye. I'm shooting a ST360 and Truball BT gold ultra 3 so. I still feel like my draw is a hair short. Haven't had time to play with it yet.

    Another thing that "may" help is to get your anchor up as tight as possible for your shortest yardage. This should keep your anchor plenty snug for that 42 yarder and help close your vertical groups.

    Mickey, could you explain further, my mind is just not wrapping around this concept?

    I had my wife take some pics of my anchor last night, anchorlooks higher than what most folks are using. I also am using the TruBall BT Gold Ultra 3.

    Your peep is in essence the fulcrum for your line of sight. As you adjust your scope for longer distances, your anchor will drop some. If you have an anchor that has a verticle limit, such as the bottom of your ear, you can make that upper limit up very tight for your shortest yardage setting. This will keep your anchor somewhat snug for longer distances and "may" help shrink your verticle group size.

    Actually it is true that on uphill and downhill shots as well as long and shorter shot your anchor will migrate a bit. But it is also true that your anchor isn't a random point of convenience picked because you knuckle feels good there.. it is rather a product of your body's skeletal design... a point predetermined by the position of your scapula and the length of your arm from the shoulder to the elbow and the elbow to the fingers.


    Just as the bows draw length has little to nothing to do with your loop or your drawing arm.. it is the fit of the bow from the palm of your bow hand to the reference points you choose on the face like your nose and/or the corner of your mouth and the string angle plays an important part.

    Mickey and Javi- Should I set my peep at a longer distance, say 30 yards??? Holding with the arrow level, my anchor is pretty high.

    The 3d class I shoot in has a max distance of 40 yards, however most shots are in the 25 -35 yard range.

    I generally set my peep at the average distance I will be shooting with the bow..
