I've recently been working on shooting with both eyes open. It was difficult to get used to at first, but I do find my accuracy has improved.

Ive been shooting two eyes since I started shooting a bow. IMO it increases accuracy a lot.

I shoot both eyes open, might have to squint a little every now and then to get boh pin and target to focus but still both eyes stay open.

I shoot with both eyes open, but i close one for a second to focus and then open it. I am a left eye dominat RH shooter.

i shoot with one eye open. i think that is because i am used to looking through scopes while shooting guns.

I honestly didnt try switching to two eyes open but I just caught myself doing it one day and realized how it improved my shooting and how my field of view is soo much better.
