There are some archers that consider bow attachments a sin. Their longbows and recurves don’t even have attachment points. For them, accuracy comes down to drilling and reflex.
There’s nothing wrong with that. Some shooters prefer muzzleloaders and iron sights too. To each his own.
But, to others, accuracy is more science than art, and modern compound bows push the absolutely technical limitations of the sport.
On that note, let’s peel back the layers of a leader in archery technology: Apex Bow Sights.
Covert 4-Pin Series Apex Bow Sights: What They Offer
Two separate models are available, both with 1.8” apertures. They are extremely versatile and combine the relative advantages of both a multi-pin sight and a sliding-pin sight. The Apex Bow Sights in the Covert 4-pin series share the following features:
● They’re quick and easy to mount and set up; standard and detachable mounts are configurable with Covert-series Apex Bow Sights. The detachable bracket allows for a longer sight radius and easier storage.
● The package includes over 120 pre-marked yardage tapes, simplifying set up. The yardage tape is rear-facing and easy to see.
● Precision machined aluminum construction makes these bow sights exceptionally strong, yet lightweight and corrosion-resistant.
● A black, non-reflective finish that is perfect for remaining undetected, even in the bright woods; “Covert,” here is more than a name, it is a philosophy.
● Micro-adjustable windage and elevation settings, for pinpoint accuracy and tack-driving shots.
● Ultra-smooth, one-handed adjustments, for silence and discretion in the woods.
● It’s not just for right-handed shooters; it’s configurable for left-handed shooters, making it a southpaw-friendly bow sight.
● These Apex Gear bow sights feature “GRAVITY-LINE” rotational adjustment range accuracy which allows the pins to align with gravity, boosting long-range accuracy and compensating for minor cants of the bow.
● They feature 2nd and 3rd axis adjustment capabilities.
● These Apex Bow Sights come with a glow-in-the-dark shooter’s ring, improving low-light useability.
● They come with an LED light included.
An Argument for Bow Sights
Whether your bow is equipped with an Apex bow sight or not, there is a good argument, at least for hunters, to outfit their bows with them.
Without a bow sight, you have to lean on experience, intuition, and familiarity with your bow and arrows to connect with a target. That’s fine for competition and trick shooting, but one might call it unethical in the field.
Don’t take that claim amiss. There are plenty of ethical longbow and recurve archers out there that cleanly dispatch game every year. But for the beginner, there is no crutch of experience or familiarity.
If you want to take up bowhunting and have never so much as drawn before, consider using a bow sight. It will eliminate guesswork and make it much more practical (and replicable) for you to close accurate shots – which means humanely killed harvests and a higher recovery percentage.
That doesn’t mean that as you become a proficient archer, you can’t drop the sight and focus on shooting barebow – it’s just a bit of food for thought.
