Default both eyes open or not?

ive been bow hunting for 20 years and i have always been able to shoot good groups out to 50 yards but just for the hell of it ive been starting to shoot with both eyes open and man did i shrink my groups even tighter. im grouping the size of a golfball out to 50 yards and at 60 yards im shooting like the size of a tennis ball. just curious if you guys have tried it or do it. if not try it. its a little awkward at first but man it works

I also shoot both open. It's easier, and takes less effort. Better focus as well.

I've started shooting with both eyes open as well, but I haven't seen any noticable differences in group sizes.

I shoot with both open with rifle or bow. It's alot easier to accquire the target using both eyes.

I find my target with both open, the squint and refocus on a particular spot. I know it sounds weird but it works for me.

Both eyes open. You can't believe how much better you can see the impact. I use the wide peep. I shoot the shot gun with both eyes open also. Actually your suppose to.
