Hi all ,I thought I had dialed in my wicked ridge warrior in at 20yds,which is a tack driver,but after getting a rangefinder I found it was actually 23 yds is that going to be off now at 20 or am I still good?

Re: sighting in range

The variance shouldn't be that bad to require a re-sight. I have an original Horton and I sight in for 25 and hold pretty much dead on from 15 to 25 and just slightly high at 30

I gotta go agitate the techies!

Re: sighting in range

You should set that bow up according to range finder. I do back to 40 yards by the range finder. Then when your in your stand I range pionts, usually trees out as far as needed.
That way bow and range finder are tuned together. Even when shooting from a high stand.
Food for thought.

Re: sighting in range

you should bet ok. I always tell people to practice at all range(s) you plan to hunt. It will breed confidence in your equipment and hone your skills.

will hunt for food....
