It really comes down to what works for each individual. I started out centering the pin in the peep, but that gave me a little too much wiggle room because centered is such a relative term. You can tweak your anchor a little and fight for "center." Anything you can do to be more consistant shot to shot will only make you more accurate.
Most sight now use a round pin guard, and most have a ring on them to better aid a visual in low light. The trick is to get a peep the right size so the high vis ring just fits the inside of the peep. Thats just one more way to be sure your form is correct.
Draw you bow, find anchor, string lightly touching tip of nose (for me), peep at correct height so I dont have to use contortionism to find the hole, center high vis inside peep and find correct pin for yardage, ready to fire. You may find that instead of using your arms to elevate the bow, you need to bend at the waist to keep proper form, which is what you want. When I shot the pin in the center, I felt like I had to really use my shoulders to keep the bow on target, but keeping the pin guard centered just felt more solid.
Sounds way more complicated than it is, but give it a shot. Its been a way more repeatable shot for me, and its way easier to center that big ole pin guard than a little bitty pin.
What sight are you shooting now? Just curious, cuz my sight is on a dovetail and it can move in and out and between a fairly large peep and using the dovetail mount, it lets me fit the white ring on my sight to the inside of the peep.
