    Complete noob question I think so I apologize if that's the case.

    When aiming your bow, do you try to get the target in focus and the on is blurred? Or keep the pin in focus an allow the target to blur? Or both and i need to get new glasses?

    Ideally you are looking through your peep and both your sight pin and the target are clearly visible.

    The pin would be most in focus if it was one or the other.

    Next time you shoot when your pin is on target open your other eye, if not all the way squint... Your sight pic will clear up, I had the same issue

    Typically both clear but definitely want to make sure you clearly see your pins

    Agreed. for me both are clear. but i "focus" on the pin. it takes time, but you will figure out what works best for you.

    I've been shooting with both eyes open but it seems i can't get both the target and pin in focus. Trying to get both in focus seems to turn everying into a blur. I'm trying to figure out if its me or my glasses or what my issue is.

    If some of you can really keep in focus your pin and target at the same time then i'm impressed! You must be a new bread of human.

    SuperKirby, some folks will tell you different, so this is really an opinion question. Which one works best for you? I personally focus on a spot on the target and let my pin (blurry) settle in on that spot.
