Hey im new here and i just got a new bow, it shoots good and everything but the top pin is set at 10 yards just for target shooting and now i dont have enough room to even set one on 20 yards, i already moved it all the was down, would i have to move my peep sight to fix this or what.

First place I would start at is a Pro Shop. Make sure the nock point is set right. Then as a starting point move your peep about 5 inches above this. Draw your bow back to a comfortable anchor point (disregard the sight pins) but find a comfortable anchor, and have a friend move the peep to where you can see. Then began to move your sights. Good luck

If you have run out of down adjustment, you will have change your anchor point as well as your peep location.

At full draw, where is your release hand? At your ear? Below your jawbone?
