carefully!
It might be best for you to take it to an archery shop or atleast have someone help you. You'll need to draw your bow back to your normal anchor point while someone makes a mark with a marker or chalk. You dont want to have to change your anchor point just to look through your peep! You'll also need to put a serving on each side of the peep to keep it in place.
Look it up on youtube! Keep in mind that a wide peep lets you see your pins better in low light! Good luck

The first time I installed a peep sight on my bow I used dental floss and the peep sight pulled out when I drew back and tore 3 out of 4 strands of my bowstring. So I had to get a new string thats why I let the guy at my local pro shop install my peep sights now.

You can do this without the aid of a bow press. You have to be careful though. I do not recomend using dental floss as a serving. I like to use power pro fishing line as a serving. Its strong and of course its water proof.
