Default Trouble shooting a "Shooting problem" ?

In the last 2 years of shooting my bow ,I noticed the arrow keeps moving to the right. I would adjust the sights and if I changed something , like arrows or head wieghts , it would be a little more to the right. My problem is I'm running out of room and will not see the front sight for the rizer,soon if it keeps going over to the right.

Has or dose anyone know what maybe the problem , or how to correct this ??
Thanks...BT

BT,
I don't know your set-up or style but if you shoot fingers you may be "plucking"the string HARD.

Look very closly at your grip on the riser as you may be torqueing(sp) the bow also.

Post your details and I am sure someone on this board can help.

I have only been here a month or two but these folks are great and always willing to help.

SF

Thanks so far ! , I shoot with a release, and I use a TM hunter rest,As I draw I use the open hand grip with out closing untill after the shot. Last year a bow shop moved my rest over near the rizer and this problem has started from there. I've thought about moving it out a little, but I was not sure if it would shoot true.
thanks again...BT

Boss,
Did you only move the outside prong? If so that will be a very small part of it. They shoud be moved evenly to keep the centershot true. To check your centershot, go to ten yards and shoot a dot near the top of your target. Back up to 15 yards and use the same pin. Now go to 20 then 25,30,35 an so on until you can see a line running down the target.
Use the same pin for each shot.

If it looks like this:


1..x

2...x

3.....x

4.......x
Move the rest slightly left.

If it looks like this:
1.......x

2.....x

3...x

4.x
Move it right just a little.
Hope this helps.
SF
