Both Eyes Open (then and now)

Prior to '95 when I shot compounds, I experienced some problems with eye fatigue. I'm normally right eye dominate. I found when shooting for a long time <200-300 arrows my left eye would take over dominance and my arrows would drift horizontally. When that happened I corrected by closing my left eye and my groups return back to where they were before.

I'm not sure if that happens with instinctive shooting, that I do now. Usually if I miss its for other reasons.

Has anyone out in TradGang land experienced eye dominate change due to eye fatigue while shooting instinctivley with Trad. equip?

Both for hunting.  But if I am target practicing long range near "point on" distance, or taking a hail mary at a small varmit, I will often aim down the shaft with one eye to get my windage right at that range.  Sometimes I can make an incredible group at 45 yards that I can't possibly manage at 30 with this.

Both open.My 13yr.old son shoots with one open and I use to tell him he should open the other too,thinking that was the right way,but he shoots so good I just leave him alone now.Works for him!
