One eye or two eyes open?
I can only shoot with one. ABout 10 years ago I used 2. I just cant anymore for some reason.

always two for me...the army engrained that in my head... doesn't matter if its a bow or a scoped rifle two eyes open!

I use both eyes, although some days I do have trouble and need to close my left eye for a few seconds. Once I get glasses or contacts that fit correctly, I won't have that problem.

Ive tried with 2 eyes but cant do it. When I try it I shoot way left.

I'll second that. I start off with both then slowly squeeze my left almost closed.

I shoot with both eyes open. When I was in the Marine Corps I used to range shoot with a patch over my weaker eye but still kept it open (pretty useless in a hunting situation).

I suppose I'm a bit odd. I shoot rifles and pistols with one eye open, my bow with both eyes open, and a shotgun with both eyes open as well.:cool:

It seems like I do better with both eyes open

I'm a one eyed cadoodle!! i to have tried to shoot with both open, but it feels weird. I'm going to try it again this spring to see if it gets any better.,
