Default Low light peep Sight

Does anybody have any first hand experience with a low light peep sight? I have missed twice this season in low light conditions due to being able to see my pin, but not my peep (not being able to make sure my sight housing is centered in my peep view.)

Having a yellow ring around your sight should help, once the ring disappears, it means you are aligned. No experience with said peeps though. A precision peeps peep may work for you. no need to align the rings...

Low light peep = large apeture.

I use a 5/16 inch peep and you may want to look up “ bonus ring” they seem to really help. They have different color rings that go around your sight housing, some glow in the dark colors also. They are like 10.00.

This is one reason I have always used a kisser button. I do not like worrying about aligning my peep with my sight housing.

I shoot a 1/4" aperture, my fluorescent sight ring fits inside the aperture when I aim. It lines up very well and is visible in low light, when I can no longer see my pin, I quit hunting.

large ap..
but honestly a solid anchor point should get u in nearly the same spot.. I know several ppl that shoot great with no peep.
Maybe put a kisser on and take off the peep

I've been using these for ~10-15 years, ever since a low light missed opportunity cost me a sweet wall-hanger.

http://www.fsdiscountarchery.com/bro...-No-Peep-.html

It's similar to using a kisser button- you come to full draw the same way every time- at full draw you can look up to verify the two circles are centered and then fire.

It basically trains you to use the same knocking point every time.

It will also show the flaws in your draw you can correct with your wrist while at full draw- taking a quick glance at the no-peep has saved me from making bad shots when shooting from a high tree stand (not holding square) and while twisted in a chair from a groundblind (torquing the grip) .

I spend a disporptionate amount of time hunting pigs very late in the day at the ranch fairy test lab, well, testing stuff. As most of you know, its a hoot.

Throw away your peep and put on a kisser.

What is happening to you is your eye, your retina specifically, is "cupie dolling" as light fades. This is 100% physiology and you cannot beat it. So, your vision goes to black and white because of this whole sun setting or rising thing and what you see, is black and white portrait mode on an I phone.
Then you put your eye in a peep, narrowing your vision. It took me a few years to figure this out.

Oh may the good lord help you if you have a lighted pin, because that will blind your cupie doll eye, starving for light, more than you realize. So you end up kind of shooting at a blob. To all those who also shoot late and at night for pigs and get away with it and shoot a teeny tiny peep and have 9 pins and the brightest pin light ever. OK - you win.

To the mortals and losers who have a bit of night vision challenges or those who have struggled making GOOD SHOTS late day or early or foggy or heavy cloud cover days on deer or at night (pigs). Please consider my comments.

It is an option.
