Default Pin Picking

I shot my bow a couple weeks ago for the third time this year but I was having trouble focusing on just one pin. I have a four pin toxonics site but I was considering switching to just a one pin sight. Does anyone have any input on this. I dont know if I would be screwing up by doing this or not.

i'd say you need to be shooting more if you're having that problem. i use a rangefinder to mark spots and usually have a good idea of the yardage a deer is at, so multiple pins takes the guess work out of things.

Its not that. I have a range finder but when I start looking at the multiple pins its hard for me to focus on them for some reason now. The pinsare set at 16, 20, 25, and 30 yards. I dunno it makes me nervous or something. Its wierd I guess I will just have to deal with it.

Why are your pins set so close in yardage? Maybe if you spread them out more, it would help. I have a five pins sight, and I just set one pin for every ten yards out to fifty. Even with that, my ten and twenty pin are really close.

I'll try that but I just dont like splitting my pins when I shoot. It leaves so much to guess work. But I guess switching to a one pin sight would be guessing alot too so. I'll try it

Steve you tardI use only one adjustable pin and for me it's the only way to go. When hunting I lock it in on 25 yards andI can pretty much hold dead on from 0-35 yards.

Try using 20,30,& 40.Or, 25,35&45.Youcan usethe 25 yd pin and be good from 0-25 yds.

The biggest problem is you not practicing enough. Only 3 times this year?
If you practiced more you'd see that you can easily use a 20 yd pin to 25. A 35 yd pin from 25-40.

Davepjr71 trust me dude I have practiced more than 3 times in my life. Ive been bowhunting for about 8 years. I know that what you are saying is true but I set my sights differently than traditional to fit my bow and its capabilities. Thanks for the advice my problem however is like seeing double when I look at the pins I just cant focus on one.
