Default Need advice...

Ok, last night when lowering my bow down it got caught up in the rope and a branch, I had to pull the bow back up and it got all tanlged in the rope. Last night when I got home I got shot it a couple of times under the flood light, cuz Im crazy like that, and I hit bulls eye on the last shot. Today, I shot in the light and almost every shot went about an inch to inch 1/2 to left. My question is, what should I do? I mean I have been acurate and Im thinking that I maybe holding the bow differently now for some reason, because about evry 3 or 4 shots it is dead center. I shoot with a kisser and a peep. How can I tell what is going on? I know this a rookie question coming from a veteran bowhunter, but I need help !!!

Thanks guys, I will shoot again before I move anything, I really didn't pull it that hard or drop it, if anything moved it may be the rest, phantom drop away, not real happy with it>>>>>>

Make sure it isn't the arrows. Maybe you are hitting well with a good arrow.

I shot a few different arrows and they all flew pretty much the same, to the left about an 1 1/2. I moved the sight over and it seemed to shoot more accurate, but every once in a while I would shoot to the left. I must be favoring this side for some reason.
