PEEp sight noise

Postby Blazed » Fri Sep 19, 2008 4:47 am

How do I silence a peep sight cable? The rubber tubing is making enough noise to help the deer "jump the string" . I had 2 shots last weekend and both deer ducked. I did get the second one as I hit her in the liver.

If the deer ducked, your shot was greater then 20 yrds. Aim lower, j/k maybe some silicone?

The shots were at 18 yds. and 17 yds. My range is 25 yds, and I had a Big Buck at 20 on Sunday morning, but hesitated, to let him get closer and he spooked before I could even draw on him.

The reason I said the shot was plus 20 yards is because the archery industy has done extensive testing on what yardage deer can duck. The consensus was 20 yards or more with todays blazing fast compound bows deer could duck the string. Just some information to pass on. Also a trick that may help with string jumping is; pull your bow back to full draw aim on the pin and if your a release shooter have a buddy hit the trigger on your release at different times. This will help you with gripping the bow when you release an arrow.
 
Good luck and good shooting

Actually Ive read by Chuck Adams that he doesnt set up too close to the deer as they have a better chance of jumping the string. (Actually duck and roll) He sets up off trails for a 25 yd or 30 yd shot. As far as the peep noise I use a tubeless one and would recomend it if your string is good enough for one. I use G5's 1/4" meta peep and love it. Those tubes are noisy,dangerous if it breaks and hits your eye, and slow the string down a little. I would suggest if you are  gonna stick with what you got aim for the lower 2/3 of the vitals that way if they duck youll still get lungs and if they dont youll make a low lung/heart shot. And MAG30079 I not saying your wrong, just that Ive read different opinions.

Goose,
Do you shoot fingers with the G5? I'm worried about twist.

Anyone shooting fingers use a tubeless peep?

Get rid of the peep with the hose . Try a Shurz a Peep . It requires that you string be split in thirds . If it doesn't line up , pull the string back with your fingers and roll the string while you do this and then let it down easy . It should then align ! Works for me ...........
