Default Peep or No Peep

Been looking into shooting without a peep. Currently I have 3 solid anchor points. Wondering what obstacles/learning curve I should expect. Iíve thought about going with one of the IQ sights to give a 4th reference.

Thoughts/Suggestions?

Nose on string, kisser button, knuckle anchored behind jawbone.

Not changing right now, plus my bow is in shop getting new limbs since the lower limb started delaminating this past weekend. May get it back half way through Oct.

I’m able to confidently run a peep less setup because 10 years ago this summer I installed an “anchor sight” after a couple poorly anchored shots that I couldn’t correct without some help. I can’t imagine using a compound without this thing now, ESPECIALLY in low light conditions or while nighttime hog hunting.

I felt it was a relevant area of interest. Hope it helps someone!

If it works don't change. I use a peep, string on the middle of my upper lip and a Carter 4 finger anchored in my jaw between the thumb and index finger. Do what you do best. I've been doing this since '88.

I will tell you that I started ignoring my bowmar nose button and I am shooting much better than ever before.

Anchor sight mentioned above is the way to go. I shot peepless for 10 years. Went back to a peep when I started shooting competition and wanted lense and clarifier.
You donít have to lose peep to use it either. Itíll show the slightest difference in anchor, takes some patience setting it to your anchor. I recommend it to anyone struggling with inconsistencies as itís a great training aide.
