losing pins in groung blind

Postby turkey tom 25 » Thu Sep 02, 2010 2:14 am

The place I will be hunting this fall is in an old pasture. No trees, so I set up a tent ground blind. The sight on my bow is a Trophy Ridge Micro Matrix and the pins are in a vertical line-the pins are stacked in front of each other. My problem is that when I practice out of the blind I lose sight of the longer range (lower) pins when shooting from the dark tent into the bright sunlight. Any suggestions?

[size="1"]Truglo Tru-Lite Extreme Violet Sight Light
The Truglo above is the one I installed on my sight because I hunt out of a dark ground blind also. It does help in low light & cloudy days.  There are others on the market you can check into.  Search for "sight light" to see the options.

A light may help on the sunny days you described.  I don't remember having that problem on a sunny day but then I haven't had any shot opportunities over 25-30 yards anyway. 

I have since gone to the Hind Sight Cross Fire that has the same Truglo lite incorporated in the sight & after messing with it last night I really like it.

While practicing you might try a small flashlight shining on the fiber optics to see if it might help.  Maybe someone can hold it there for you while you draw?  Since the sight lights are a low intensity violet light, maybe a low intensity flashlight to test it out?

Get rid of the pins and shoot instinctive! Saves a lot of trouble and aggravation, not to mention a WHOLE LOT cheaper! [:)]
