Default Do any of you know?

Do any of you a reason, any reason at all why I might be shooting my bow to the left? With my old alumminum I use to shoot they shot good and straight then I went to carbon and I started shooting left so I got a different whisker biscuit rest because mine was too big for carbon arrows I thought that might be the reason for shooting leftbecause the arrow wasn't firmly in place sometimes wobbled. Butthat wasn't the problem. And at about 20 yards it shoots about 6 inches left and at 30 about a foot left.

So I was just wondering do any of you guys know why I might be shooting to the left? Just based on waht you know or form the past or what other people have told you.any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Let's not make it more difficult than it needs to be. If they're GROUPING...it's the sights that need to be moved. If they're NOT grouping... it's the bow or shooterand or set up needs tuning. It's really that simple. Different arrows, different rest etc etc etc can yield very different results but it can all be fixed to match.

Are they grouping ok? If so, adjust your sight.

Yes I think if you were shooting left before you changed the rest it most likely is your sight's ,but if it started shooting left after you changed your rest then I'd look to the rest to be moved to the left .So yes I agree with David on this as well.

Watch your wrist, you may gotten into a habit of cocking your wrist to the left without even noticing it. I noticed my daughter doing this.
