Due you use both eyes or close one while aiming? I use both eyes real nice during low light.
I use one eye, my right eye. My little bro is left handed shoots right handed and uses both eyes to aim with:coco: , but he sure does hit what he is aiming at.
I believe you have got to use both eyes with any weapon of choice...can you see better with 1 eye open or 2?
I close the left eye, right eye open. I shoot that way with bow and gun.
I shoot gun and bow with both eyes open.
I SHOOT RIGHT HANDED, CLOSING MY LEFT EYE FOR BOW AND GUN. FUNNY THING IS THAT I AM LEFT EYE DOMINATE. I SHOULD BE SHOOTING LEFT HANDED, BUT JUST NOT PHYSICALLY CO-ORDINATED ENOUGH.
I just found out a few months ago the exact same thing. I'm right handed, bat right handed, throw right handed, everthing....so naturally when I picked up a bow/gun several years ago, I shot right handed....
Did the ole' "dominant eye test" and I'm left eye dominant!!! :dizzy:
Too late now to change in my book....and I can't even begin to imagine pulling a bow back left handed! :bonk:
I can still put meat in the freezer every year so I'll leave well enough alone! :evil:
You can do one, or two depending on the individual. But, if you're used to doing it one way, don't try to change now. Also, a lot of it depends on if you're using a peep or not. I'm right eye dominant and shoot with the left eye closed, but when I shoot with both eyes open it seems that you can "guide" the arrow to the target better. What I've noticed is that if I shoot with two eyes open that the right eye will have less focus overall. For now I got to stick with the one eye open......
Cyclops doesn't have this problem.....
Both eyes closed for me...
one eye open
I'm right-handed and left eye dominant, also. I seems I read somewhere that 80% of the world's elite athletes have the dominant eye opposite the prevalent side of use (arm, hand). Anyhow, I shoot gun and bow with left eye closed, except for handguns which I shoot both eyes open. The opposite dominant eye thing has allowed me play decent baseball and golf, I believe, not sure.
I must be part of the 20% half-a$$ed athletes.
1991 3rd team all defensive player of the year baby!
Yes, J.L, I seem to have my best luck at everything when both my eyes are closed too.
i now shoot with both eyes open, seemed like my grouping got tighter. thought i'd try it and it worked better for me.
Im ambidextrious, i shoot my bow with my left eye closed right eye open, but i shoot a gun right eye closed left eye open, but im not worried because i shoot with both great so i just had to get used to switching eyes between seasons or just using my bow. both eyes open on my bow though seems that i cant focus on my target as good as i can with my one eye open.
shoot with trick mirrors over my shoulder one eye out :coolgleam
