Default anchor point

Shooting with a peep sight is it still absolutley necessary to have a definate anchor point? Thumb onthe ear, Knuckle on the jaw whatever?

If you don't anchor in the same spot your peep wont line up w/ your eye...
Your anchor point is a MAJOR part of your form, peep or no peep.

Let me rephrase that. Do you think I could be anchoring in the same point without having picked a certain part of my hand to touch a certain part of my face. I always thought you naturally center your eye in a peep sight. Like you would on a rifle with a rear peep sight.

there is a difference in rifle and bow shooting....mith a gun you bring your head down to the stock in most cases.....when shooting a bow you bring the strin/release/hand up to the position of your head....draw your bow back as if you were going to shoot it notice the position of your hand.....now do it again..... and a third time.....now think to your self was it the same every time???......

Yes, sorta...the peep is where it is because of your anchor point...So when you center your eye in the peep you should be anchored in the same point everytime...If you close your eyes, draw and anchor,when you open your eyes you should be looking right through the peep without having to adjust your anchor point...Because the anchor is more important to your accuracy.


I hope this answered your question
