    next time you shoot, make the bubble go all the way to the left or right when you shoot. This might answer your question :noidea:

    what wheels3 said. your sight is above the arrow. depending on how much space you have between the sight and the arrow will affect how much you shoot left or right if the bow is tilted.

    wheels put your bow in a bow vise, put a level against the limb pockets. then move bow left or right untill level. I put a small level on string and check front to back. then recheck left right. then adjust sight level for center.

    Yep, like everyone says. Man, you uys are all over this one... :peace:

    And, if you shoot with a multi pin sight and don't level the sight itself you will get left/right variances at different yardages.

    Level the sight to the bow riser or shelf and definitely use the level. If you don't have a sight with a level you should get one.

    Good luck.

    Dont forget 3rd axis.

    If you sight is equiped with 3rd axis level adjustment you must also set it or on down hill uphill and sidehill shots your level could be inaccurate. some upper end hunting sights have this adjustment most target sights are equipped with this feature.
