    shooting short distances can distort the sighting through the peep as the elevation isnt at a natural position for most people. Change the position of the peep and you are stuffed at the longer distances. Changing foresight is easier and quicker and you can put a cant into it for best light gathering and viewing but you still have to suffer a little.
    Buy another bow, that will sort the problem so you can have one for each set of distances.

    I think I'll just put up with it - spent far too much already!

    OK then, how about searching out another sight.
    says the bloke who strains his neck to see through the peep properly at short distances rather than risking misaligning things when adjusting to avoid the same problem

    321 on a Frostbite (36@ 30m) just now. Probably not great but it felt good and no arrows went stupidly off target.

    My son did well too once we sorted a wonky sight.

    I would be happy with that. If your range is anything like ours the elements conspire to keep your scores down below expectations. The alternative is to shoot frostbites in the summer.
    I shot one last week longbow and snapped 2 arrows due to the crosswind. Once I no longer have a half-dozen full length shafts I recycle them for the juniors use and to lose in the grass.

    It was a bit rainy and very wet underfoot but generally okay. My arrows were incredibly hard to get out though; a two person job for many of them. And three completely buried themselves in the target; vanes and all. Shows the power of these things (and the boss is clearly a bit knackered!)!

    But good fun; Iím feeling it in my right bicep today (poor draw form I suspect?!).
