    HELP!!!

    I need some advice. I have my bow sighted in at 20 yards. Can shoot well at 20 yards. I go to sight my second pin in at 30 yards and I'm all over the place. I have it at the right level but I hit on the right then left then below then up. I get bulls eye sometimes and then not. Getting frustrated. Have the IQ MICRO BOW SIGHT. Any tips?????

    How much draw weight have you got! Lots of times 20yards is easy to hit. 30yards gets a little harder to keep steady if you have too much draw weight. Also inhale or exhale and hold before you shoot this will steady you even more.

    Practice at 50 yards and then 30 will seem easy. Try and follow through the shot a little more. Don't move your bow hand till the arrow is in the target.

    At 30 you may be trying to peek around on the shot.

    As tsm213 said, stay completely still and keep looking at target like you still aiming till you hear the thunk of arrow striking target.

    Sounds to me like an anchor point problem, you might try having someone watch you shoot just to see for sure if your being consistent.

    Years ago I had a No-Peep on my Allegience and had similar issues. I will admit that I was over-bowed just starting out, thinking that I needed 70#, but the biggest thing was trying to get the centering ring/dot on the No-Peep to line up and then move to my sight pin for the distance. By the time I had them lined up, I was tired from holding so long and had tons of consistency issues like yours. I switched to the traditional peep setup and the issue went away. It could be part of the problem, then again, it may not be.....

    It could be tuning problems. At 20 yrds you happen to get a good group but out to 30 yrds +the tuning is such that your group is spreading. Could be worth a look at.
