Every hunter knows that finding the right bow peep sight can feel like a scientific calculation. Check out the ultimate guide for finding the best bow peep sight size for your hunting needs.
A creek babbles quietly in the background as the sun lays lazily low, just barely peeking above the far-off horizon. There’s buck at the crossing. You’re in a perfect position. You’ve practiced your form for weeks early in the season. You’re confident your pins are correctly sighted. You flex, bringing your bow into a full draw back. Your peep naturally finds your eye. But wait – where did the buck go? You’re squinting like crazy, but the world around you is dark and blurry. You relax the bow to readjust, but by the time you look back up, just like the wind, he’s gone.
Don’t let this all too common tale happen to you! Whether you’re out in the plains or the prairie, no one wants to be slowed down by their peep sight. Even with your pin sight in its exact place and the perfect form, a peep sight of the incorrect size or placement will obscure your view and cause erratic groupings. Don’t forget you still have to consider sunlight conditions, axel to axel, and brace height. Running through these calculations is a complication hunters understand all too well.
This guide will ease you into the world of peep sights and make selecting the right sight size easier. The fun part about buying peep sights is they’re relatively inexpensive, and each manufacturer brings its unique touches to improve your accuracy in target acquisition. So fear not the peep sight and dig in!
