Default changing draw length?

If I adjust my draw length do I need to adjust anything else? Like peep or retune? sorry for the dumb question new to all this!

I think that would depend on the bow and how you adjusted the draw length. More info?

Okay, the bow is a hoyt xtec, increased draw by .5 in, seems too shoot fine feels differant like I am not so cramped. when I look thru my peep I see a differant pic of my sight. I see the hole circle of my TR matrix. The string doesnt hit my arm either so I think everything is ok! Just wanted to know what more experianced archers thought about it. so please leave feedback

Increasing your draw will give you a little more speed but if it is to long you will start to see some left and right in your groups. Increasing or decreasing your draw will change your noc point and therfore change trajectory. Shoot through paper get a good tear and then reajust your sight
