Both open here. Just takes a bit of getting used to it but you field of view increases to 100 %.
That would be from a 50% field of view with one eye closed, right?
(Sorry, Mowtown. I couldn't resist.)

I'm currently trying to learn to shoot with both eyes open, and at 20 yards, I can do it well. At 30+, I'm terrible. I can't seem to put all the imagery together. I have noticed that at 10 & 20 yards, keeping both eyes open makes ita lot easier to settle the pin on target, so I'll keep working on it.
Oh yea your right man, I forgot that ordinary folks didn't have bionic vision. Sorry.

I am right handed and left eye dominant. I find myself shooting with my left eye slightly closed, however, I am trying to "train" my right eye to focus in better so I can shoot with both eyes open.

Sometimes in low light at targets I find myself half closing my off eye. I have to catch myself all the time. In hunting and decent light I always have both open. Don't know why that is but in practice I screw it up. I think it's when I start worrying too much about a peep and not a spot.

I do, this also helps you get on the target quicker. It also works well with rifle scopes.

9i cant, right handed shooter, left eye dominant
Ditto. Lately I've been squinting my left eye instead of closing it totally though and that has been working. If I keep both open all the way, I have to choose which of the pins is the real one and which is double vision

I have always shot my bows with both eyes open. It really helps see the targetwith my aging eyes especially at dawn and dusk. Come to think of it I shoot everything with both eyes open, rifle, shotgun, pistols, and even my slingshot.
