What About Low Light? Using A Precision Peep Sight In Low Light

We get asked about shooting and bow hunting with a Precision Peep in low light quite a bit. After I WOW you with some low light photos, we'll talk about color choice (Does it matter?), and some things to keep in mind when shooting in low light with a Precision.

1 shot. 30 yards. 10 minutes before dark. 

Yup, this shot in the dead center of the bulls pretty much speaks for itself. If you'd like to read a complete review written by Full Drawn Addiction, please click HERE.

I’m a bowhunter...Iowa, deep in the hardwood timber, last 5 mins of shooting light, doe walked in at 30 yards. Normally I wouldn’t have shot because not enough light. Since the peep is 5/16ths it lets WAY more than enough light in. I actually didnt have to turn my site light on because I could actually see the pins. I lined up the peep pin and the site pin and let it fly. The Lumenok lit up the timber, double lunged it and had a short 20 yard recovery. was a good night fillin’ the freezer :-)

5 Arrows Stacked

You know it's dark outside when you can only see the picture because of lighted nocks!

Your peep (Precision Peep) worked as advertised. It was low light, I settled the peep in. Perfect shot.

30 Yards In The Dark

Yup, This guy can shoot and shoot well. And while Cliff loves his Precision Peep Sight, I will say he practices and practices a lot in order to make the long shots, the shots in low light, and all of his amazing hunting shots. He lives in Hawaii with 365 bow hunting opportunities so he makes sure he is always on his game!

30 yards. 8pm (in the Winter) 

We had to lighten this photo up quite a bit to show off Richard Loosemore's awesome low light Archery Shot!

Okay, The Results Speak For Themselves I See That, But What Is The Best Peep Sight Color For Low Light?

This is kind of a trick question, but one we get often. The answer is, we wouldn't sell it if it didn't work well in low light. Orange tends to be one of our more popular colors for people hog hunting, or who are very concerned about hunting in very low, (but legal) first or last light. But truth be told, we've had people use a variety of the colors in low light situations. That's the beauty of a wider aperture; it let's in all of those light gathering properties, but with the post, you still have that small peep accuracy. Let those arrows FLY!
