Tony Peterson, a contributing writer for the well-known Petersen's Bowhunting Magazine, recently got his hands on a Precision and did quite the comprehensive writeup for his Precision peep sight review.
The Peep Sight Review Process
We love Tony's initial skepticism (he didn't think he'd like the post) his thorough testing process, and ultimately his conclusions. We also really liked Tony's emphasis on correct form, how form can easily be affected out in the field hunting versus the archery range, and the importance of practice. Tony writes,
"When distances are easily known, time is not a factor, and we can stand flat-footed and fire away, it's pretty easy to reap the benefits of modern compounds and the latest accessories. However, when you're standing on the side of a mountain, shooting downhill at a bedded mule deer...the process of making a good shot becomes more difficult."
Tony Shoots The Precision Peep Sight
One of our most frequently asked questions is, "will the post block my target?". We LOVE this explanation of depth-of-field given a hunting scenario.
A Great Explanation of the Precision Peeps Post
"I look at it like when I'm sitting in a pop-up blind that I've brushed in. I'll hang branches over the top of the blind and allow them to droop down in front of my shooting ports. For the outside it looks like they'll get in the way, but when I'm inside at full draw, they don't because they are so close. Precision Peeps function similarly, putting the post at your eye and giving you the chance to not only see that it is sitting neatly below your chosen pin, but allowing you to see around it."
And Precision Peep for the Wife's Bow...
Part of Tony Petersen's process was to serve-in the peep sight on his wife's bow. After he explained the peep and our aiming process, he writes,
"She took to it immediately...Her experience has me convinced that any newcomer to our sport would shoot better, quicker, with one of these peeps."
Final Conclusions on the Precision Peep Sight Review
In the end, Tony seems to really enjoy using the Precision Peep in bowhunting situations.
And concludes with,
"That for the price of a couple of Starbuck's lattes, it is definitely worth it to try (The Precision Peep Sight)."
