    Have you had the bow tuned by a good tuner? Sounds like your rest may be a little to the left. I would walkback tune it and see what that shows. Good luck.

    Try broadhead tuning or bare shaft tuning and then see if your sight can be adjusted so that the arrows hit where aimed.

    This type tuning may require you to move your rest and or move your nocking point.

    Is your hand open or closed when you shoot?

    If you keep your hand close when you shoot you twist the bow one way or the other creating torque.

    Sounds like you need to move your peep sight down (i think), that should allow you to drop your pins back down and hit where you aim. Your rest sounds like it needs moved as well, check your center shot ( your rest should be completely centered with the centerline on your sights) as well.

    I believe what he means is that you might be gripping the bow too hard instead of having a soft and relaxed grip. Gripping too hard usually causes torque i.e. the bow twists a bit to the left/right, causing your shots to miss, in this case, up and left.

    To rule out form, have someone else shoot your bow and check results.

    sounds like you could be healind the bow.Putting to much palm of your hand on the bow and pushing the bow up and out during the shot.

    Causes could be any and or a combination of a few ideas

    Form and hand torque -- can be checked by anther shooter to see if the same reaction results

    Arrow spine issue can be checked by trying a different arrow type or raising or lowering the bow weight to see if a difference in impacts shows

    Arrow contact with either the bow or rest can be checked by spraying foot powder and or using lip stick to see if any contact shows

    Checking any of the limbs locking bolts or set screws that may be loose and causing a limb to be shifted some to the side may be a possibility

    The position of the arrow rest in relation to correct center shot can be a cause and can be corrected by asking what the normal center shot position measurement of your bow should be with an arrow that is correct in spine.

    Some bows require a off set spacer for the sight to get it in the correct sight window area.

    Hereís just a couple for starters

    Just donít over think

    I did two things that helped me when I was having this problem

    1) A made a stabilizer kind of like the B-Stinger but made it out of aluminum. The weight is at the end of the stabilizer and this helped with torque.
    2) A friend told me to place my finger tips on the front of the grip. This still seems like you are holding the bow but prevents you from tightening your fist to hold the grip directly after you shoot. Try it. It's kind of strange at first but it seemed to help me.

    Did you try some of the other advice as well? Did they not help?

    Curious to know for the future when others have this problem as well.
