Many archers choose a bow sight to help them hit their target accurately and successfully. Bow sight is one of the three main basic things you need when you are just about to start in archery. It will help you determine how low or high, left or right when releasing the string of your bow.
Here are three tips on how to get most of your bow sight:
Throw a lot of arrows
As they say, practice makes perfect. Do not get used to only throwing one arrow when adjusting your sight. Throw as many arrow as you can before you finalize the placement of your sight. It will help you in seeing your target clearly accurately.
Make a smart adjustment
Do not rush when adjusting your sight. Once you tried throwing crossbow arrows and did not hit your target, calculate how much you need to adjust from top to bottom and from left or right.
Getting the right adjustment with your sight until you hit the bulls-eye will help you aim other targets better.
Follow your arrow
When adjusting your sight, it is important to follow your arrow whether you are shooting a compound or recurve bow. Move your sight accordingly to the direction of your target.
When you are hitting too low, adjust your sight three to five times up and when you are hitting too high, adjust your sight two to three times down. Following your arrow does not only help you hit the target but it will also help you adjust your aim.
Personalized a technique
One way to make the most of the bow sight is to create your own technique on how to adjust it accordingly. It always depend on how comfortable you are when adjusting the sight to clearly see your target.
You will then know how many up, down, left or right you need to move in order to hit your aim.
