Peep-sight glare

Postby Sailfish » Tue Oct 11, 2011 7:23 am

I noticed recently with the changing of the season, the sun moving farther south, that when I am practicing in the a.m. sun, I get a reflection/glare off the bottom of my peep-sight into my eye. Makes my shot darn near impossible! It only in the a.m.(doesn't last longer than 30-45 min) and when I am in a certain spot. but I was wondering, have you ever encountered this while in a tree? What did you do? I hadn't, but I know I have a location set-up come opening that will put me in the a.m. sun for a short spell.

Just wondering

Are you using a very small peep, or one of the "hunter" sized ones, with the bigger opening. I use the larger ones and have never had that problem....

I had a guy at a bow shop actually take a drill bit to my peep sight to make it larger for me. Makes it much easier to locate the pin.
