    I sometimes struggle with quickly getting the peep perfectly aligned with sight housing.
    Is anyone shooting peepless with a kisser or nose button? thoughts?

    Few of my shots with the compound tend to be very fast...e.g. I may se the animals working my way and generally they aren't looking at me...

    Having said that, I have worked on shot speed drawing, anchoring and settling within a couple seconds (one of my buddies says for elk, it's like a rodeo, you get maybe 8 seconds).

    There are some non peep options on the market, not sure that will help.

    Consider your comfortable distance shooting... If I'm shooting longer shots, I've got strong on noise, kisser, peep and level helping my accuracy.

    If, I found none of the above worming for my needs, I'd be going back to snap shooting a trad bow...

    If your having trouble with fast alignment your peep then your dealing with either or both of two issues.
    First your peep height, and or your sight housing is incorrectly set up or positioned.
    Or secondly you have inconsistencies in your anchoring and form.

    The problem with going peepless if your dealing with that later is that your going to be exacerbating the issue. You have to first negate the reason for needing a peep in the first place before you can think about eliminating it to over come it’s short comings

    If your form and setup it is spot on, then going peepless at typical whitetail( not open county ) ranges doesn’t have much down side.

    Trail nails it.
    In typical whitetail hunting, I feel a peep is a detriment.
    .I typically hunt thick and close. Got rid of my peep.
    You WILL have to have a solid,consistent anchor point though.
    I use a kisser button.
