    I was reading somewhere the other day about how much someones shooting improved when they started shooting with both eyes open. I tried this last night and well I think I would need A LOT of practice. I couldn't see anything as far as centering my sight window in my peep :doh:

    Is there a trick to this? How many of you shoot both eyes open?

    Both for me. But I would not call myself a great shooter, far from it.

    How in the heck do you look thru a scope etc. I have the shoot thru cutesty Hoyt thingy and all I see is the bar in the way with both eyes open. It's right in the middle of my field of view.

    so if you already have something blocking the view, why do you need to use the extra muscle power to keep that one closed?????:noidea:

    I keep my left eye closed becasue I am left eye dominate and can't shoot lefty. I heard that you can train your other eye to be dominate -- is this true? And if it is how long will it take?

    Is there a cure for this Dredly curse? :noidea:

    Same for me =right handed but left eye dominant. It SUCKS!


    I've heard u can retrain eye dominance but it takes a lot of work and a long time to do.

    I shoot w/ both eyes and you all that are left dom and shooting right handed go to the drug store and get a eye patch and cover when you shoot. It will get rid of some of the shots you throw due to opening that left eye during the shot sometimes.

    Yes. Put a piece of scoth tape on the lense of a pair of safety glasses. This will allow both eyes to remain open, while forcing focus with only one eye.

    Because it impares the view so you're seeing the scope kinda with one eye and the other eye you're seeing that and the part that is partially blocking the view. It doesn't close the view completely you silly goose. Wonder if an eye patch would be easier on me than closing my eye though. A nice not sarcastic answer please Bowman :tape: I know that might be difficult for you but try hard.

    I've tried to shoot with both eyes open but I see double. Like you said, it would take a lot of practice for me to keep both my eyes open.

    So, should we be wearing flak jackets at the R-100 ? :laugh:
    I plan on losing or blowing up arrows on 10% of the foamies. 100 targets (not including novelties) so 10 arrows... I only have 8. Judging distance is one of my downfalls, along with a few others. I have been practicing with my Rinehart ball in the yard though. So far I've not missed in maybe 80-100 arrows, however I did have an arrow get stopped by a sliver of foam near the top of the ball, saving it from a hellish demise...:laugh:
