my arrow kept going various degrees to the left at 20 yards. It was centered fine at 10 yards and about 4 inches high. At 20 it's maybe an inch low but I can't touch the sight today, because the wind kept blowing it to the left. Do you bow hunters usually stay at home on windy days or do you try and compensate for the wind when shooting a deer? I need to get this sighted in for the thunderheads soon as possible. Hope the wind dies down in the next couple days. Itching to get in the woods!

I never touch my sights on a windy day for sure. If I'm in the stand on a windy day I limit my range. I think the biggest problem for me is wind moving the bow more so than wind pushing the arrow. I'm comfortable at 40-45 yards on a still day, but dial it down considerably depending on the strength of the wind.

Can you not find a place to get out of the wind? I would be content to hunt with just a 25 yard pin.

it's a single pin anyway. I just sighted it in at 20 yards this afternoon since the wind died down. 2 inches high at 15 and 3 inches high at 10, approximately. I think I can take it in the woods now....
