Paul.
Welcome to the board.

If your bow is shooting high then move the sight pin up.

If you can take a couple of pics of your bow and post them here so we can try and sort it out some more.

I think if Im reading this right is your problem. You dont put the arrow on the pin. You put the arrow on the rest and hold the pin on your target as a visual alignment tool.

I have to agree with Kevin. It sounds like you are using your rest to aim with. Doing this will cause you to shoot extremely high. You said it is a bolt with a spring, this is called a cushion plunger rest and is not meant to be used as a sight. You need to purchase a sight that will be mounted in pre-tapped holes on the top of you riser. They will protrude out about 3 inches above your rest. Try to post a pic if you can so we can better explain it.

You need to find a pro shop and get some help. The sight pin you describe sounds like a " springy rest" . It is not a sight pin. Find someone with some experience and you' ll be much happier about it.

Barnett Vortex?? The only bows I' m familiar with that has the Barnett name on it are crossbows. Where did you buy it?

Your statement " I just started bowhunting in the last two weeks" is kind of scary. Bowhunting takes months to get prepared before you ever step into the woods. You cannot (unless you' re in the .0000000000000001% of humans) pick up a bow, and go hunting. You need proper equipment, properly matched equipment, and tons of practice.

Good luck to you, and find that pro-shop.
