My brother in law is wanting to get into archery. He has shot my bow a few times, but has to aim way off center because he is left eye dominate. What does he do? Shoot a left handed bow, or right hand bow and use his non dominate eye? When he shot mine he used his left eye on my RH setup. He just aims way left.

I would recommend that he goes with a LH setup—he will shoot alot better and the learning curve will be shorter if he chooses a setup that fits his "body". I have a friend that is right-handed but shoots left-handed because of his dominate left eye.

It sucks , I am in the same boat , left hand stuff is hard to find and even harder to sell if u decided to , so tell him to be extra carefully when he buys a bow to make sure he is getting one he will be happy with for a while. I have a pse xs left hand for sell if he is interested .

I am right handed and left eye dominant. I shot right handed for years aiming with my right eye. I just closed my left one. I switched to left hand a few years ago simply because the vision in my left eye is a lot better than my right. You shouldn't have any problem finding what you need in left hand if you buy stuff online. If you get everything from a pro shop then you might.
