I use one and couldn't hit a barn if I was standing in it without it. My brother in law though can shoot great without it and is a good shot at a moving target. I guess some just have an eye for it.

Last year was the first time I ever used a peep. I tried a few years back and couldn't make myself do it. For years I shot a compound bow with fingers and no peep. It's a hard habit to break.

I use a peep. The thing is, if all the equipment is set up right you don't even know its there. The pro shop has me draw my bow with my eyes closed, then simply open my eye and check for full peep sight picture. We do this 10 times. This helps to make sure all my mechanics are correct and the peep is positioned right. I use a 3/16" aperture for hunting. String stretch can change your peep picture slightly over time. Hopefully, the young people will find some of this helpful.

I used a peep for a while but switched to a "Hind Sight". It is indorsed by Tom Miranda. It mounted to the riser and extends back towards the string. With this you don't loose speed. It has a large sight picture and crosshairs that glow in the dark. They come with the hind sight only or attatched to a Truglo sight. They range in price from $30- $115. I bought the cheapest just to try it out and I will probably buy another one.
