Arrows hitting 10" to the right
« on: March 21, 2020, 07:13:31 PM »
I just received a Chek-Mate Hunter II that I bought.  I am shooting carbon 500 (it's what I presently have).  The poundage is a RH 62" and is 44# @28.  I am shooting a fixed crawl, found my right nock point for point on at 20 yards, but the arrows are stacking up to the right about 8-10 inches.  I shoot my other bow at 53# and they are right in there.  Maybe I should be shooting 400s.  Any advise is appreciated.

Just a wild guess, but is your new bow cut past center while your other bow is not?  If someone makes an abrupt change in that direction, they can expect their arrows to impact right until they adjust to it.

I'm thinking Dave is on to it.  Sounds like an alignment issue to me too (either you or the bow).  So... how does the center shot compare on each riser?

Sounds like the .500 will work depending on length and point weight but like others said, how is the center shot? You should be starting out like this to begin. Then adjust accordingly.

I have 400s coming.  I will try adding a spacer on the riser to bring the arrow left on the shelf.

If this is going to be the main bow you shoot, I would recommend against the spacer. There are a lot of advantages to having a bow cut past center.  I don't know how you aim, but if you aim instinctively, your brain will figure it out pretty soon. If you use the arrow point, enlarge your awareness to include the arrow shaft as well as the point. You will see that the shaft is pointed slightly to the right and you can correct it.  Be sure to establish a solid anchor so that the arrow nock is directly under your dominant eye.
