sounds like something is loose and moving around, as long as you don't think your doing anything different..

What kind of bow is it? It could be a timing issue.. Also you watching to make sure your shooting style hasnt changed? Your not torquing the bow. Also, when is the last time you had the strings and cables replaced?

Are also sure that its not just because your shooting to much at once and your arm and shoulder are loosing the correct form?

It's not the sight, assuming it is not loose. It is helpful to measure and record a few things when your bow is shooting like it should. Things like tiller, centershot, nock height, peep location, axle to axle, etc. Then when it seems like something is wrong, you can check all measurements to verify it is not the equipment. Then make sure a limb is not cracked. After that, you can blame the shooter.

If nothing is loose and moving around, like v8 said, it sounds like your getting tired and your form is breaking down.

If nothing is loose, or wabbling, or even broken, then it has to be your style change..
Are you anchoring in the same spot?
Fletchings turned the right way?
Dry fire it?

its never been dry fired as far as i can tell im not doing anything different i was thinking about trying out the hind sight and getting rid of my peep so i can see the target better and to see if i am torquing my bow but even if i was would that cause that much of an issue with it hitting high then low then dead on then way left
