New to bow hunting.

My thoughts of siting in: Site in bow with field tips and then fine tune with broadheads to make sure there is no change in flight.

DOES THIS SOUND RIGHT?

Think of a bow as a rifle. Set the bow up properly "TUNED". Once you are shooting with tuned arrow flight with consistency. Move sites just like moving the crosshairs on your riflescope. I personally shoot broadheads yr round.

My broadheads (G5 Striker) shoot just like my field points. So I shoot field points 90% of the time. I usually finish my practices with 2-3 broadhead shots to confirm they're right on.

I've had a McKenzie Large Alert for bout ten yrs now. I'll replace the midsection every couple yrs. But I don't shoot as much as I use to. With todays bows there is really no need. Gets kinda boring taking the X Force out back and hitting the same 1" circle time and time again out to 25 yds. Chit hang the sungun up and get ready to shoot meat... \:\)

Group tune with broadheads and field points . If you need to make changes in centershot after tuning , then sight in . A bow that is properly tuned with good flying broadheads and correctly spined arrows shouldn't need pin adjustment between field points and broadheads .
Read the article on broadhead tuning from the NAP website :
