Put one of my Death Adder Snake Eye bow sights on my 7 year old Grandson's little longbow. He hasn't shot in a long time, and is pretty wobbly, but after only a few minutes of sighting in he was doing this real regular from 10 yards. :-) <3

Hey, however you get him to hitting and keeping his interest up is great. Love your idea for that sight .

Yep - Sure makes them happy/happier when they are hitting, instead of missing. :-)

Good shooting,good instructor. I find a sight is the very best way to teach kids or grown new shooters where they need to be looking. You can always remove it later if you want but it gets them in the right position and narrows the field to teach them where to look. It always cuts the learning time way down. >>>----> Ken

Thanks Ken. :-)

I've never used a sight for my every day shooting, or hunting, but I have used them as a training tool on several occasions. It works.

I've had several lot's of questions, asking just how you use this sight. I think this picture explains it better.

You adjust elevation, by mounting the sight to give you a point on/zero at the side bars for the distance you desire.

Once attached to the bow for the desired elevation, you then adjust the aperture left/right, where when looking through it at center, your arrow is hitting center of left/right - windage.

This picture is a mock up of a sight adjusted for a 15 yard point on, and depending on your arrow trajectory, what it might look like to use it for shorter, or longer distances.

Obviously you would need to learn your trajectory, and map the aperture in your mind for distances varying from your zero.

I’ve been using the SRF sight now for over a year on one of my bows. It’s the same basic concept as Ricks sight , it works. One thing that surprises me, and I don’t know the reason , but I shoot this type sight better than a pin. I feel it helps my shooting with a bare bow also.
