I got my new bow all sighted in, but decided I just couldn't get used to the new anchor point (no kisser button, just tip of nose on string) and decided to go back to a kisser button. That resulted in me moving my peep sight up about 1.25" farther from the nocking point.

My actual anchor point isn't changing (my thumb is still resting along my jaw line) but my head is now more upright and I'm looking more squarely at the sights.

Now, which way should I move my pins? Up, down, or leave them alone? The way this bow shoots, if I miss the target completely I'll never see the arrow again!

If your peep is up farther you will shoot a little higher. Maybe not much if you only moved it 1.25. You will probably need to move you pins up. JM2C

Just get real close to the target and see. If you move your peep and get back to 20yrds and shoot you may never see the arrow again either.
