So I got A new string put on my bow the other day, But it has been raining out every time I could get out there to shoot it to re-sight it in. I can shoot in my basement but only at a max of 13 yards. My question Is how high should I sight top pin in at 13 yards to be same as sighted for 20 yds??

If I can run 10 feet in 1.5 seconds, how fast can I run a marathon?

From: Ziek
Too many variables, mostly in sighting geometry, to know.

You’ll only know once you shoot at 20 yards

From: WapitiBob
Just shoot it and worry about 20 when you get outside.

Got to agree with Wapitibob. Probably more important to you...unless you like sighting in your bow every time you work on it, is using a chronograph to check your arrow speed before and after maintenance. If you achieve the same arrow speed with the same arrow configuration and weight, then a simple "gang" adjustment (typically vertical only if the nock position has been moved slightly) will set all your pins to the previous impact points with minimal effort. Just a thought. Kevin

What is wrong with shooting in a little rain?

From: sticksender
This is just a suggestion to consider. If the bow was properly tuned before the string change, it would bother me if I had to move the sight afterwards, because I'd know something else was wrong that I hadn't yet corrected.

My 20 yard pin is spot on at 9 yards. That being said, the posts above are right.

Aim a little low.
