    This may have gone around before but I haven’t seen it.

    1. Do you shoot RH or LH or are you amphibious :whistle ?

    2. Are you right-eye or left-eye dominant?

    I shoot RH but I’m left-eye dominant. I simply close my left eye first to get my right eye focused on the target. Then I can open my left eye to shoot with both eyes open while my right eye maintains my aiming point. :thumbup

    I am left eye dominant, but have always shot a bow right handed. I shot my friends left handed Mission Eliminator one day this summer, and shooting a left handed bow I did ok, but it just feels more correct for me to shoot a right handed bow, and close my left eye. If I had to, I could get used to shooting a bow left handed, and get good left handed. When I was younger, and also while in the Army for 9 years, I always shot a rifle or shotgun left handed.

    Right eye dominant, right hand shooter.

    Some things I’m semi-ambidextrious but not many. I shoot pool left handed for example

    Thanks for the feedback. One of the things that got me thinking about it is that 2 out of 3 of the shooters as the forum opens up are left-handed. So I just wondered if there were that many left-handers or was it because of left eye dominance. Inquiring minds ……..bored too I guess. :whistle

    I was once a tadpole. ;)

    But I am right eye dominant and shoot right handed.

    I am left handed with somethings and right handed in other things. I throw a ball and catch one with either hand.

    I shoot right handed with a right eye dominance but I call myself left handed. :shock: :shock:

    Left eye and left handed.

    I shoot pistol and gun left handed, but can very comfortably shoot both ways. I used to shoot a bow right handed, then one day shot a left and realized I really needed to buy a lefty.

    Now, a right handed bow feels very wrong.

    My weird admission:
    I dribble a basketball left handed, yet shoot right handed! #-o #-o #-o You should see my lay-ups. Pretty “different” looking.

    Now arm wrestling, you should call me ambidextrous, as I am totally confident I couldn beat PAMathewsMan with either! :whistle :whistle :whistle :^O ;)

    I am what you could call “extremely” right handed! The only things I can do with my left hand is pick my nose or scratch my butt. And that’s only if the right hand is busy. Fortunately I am also right eye dominant, so no adjustments to shooting style are needed.
    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    I am left handed and left eye dominate but shoot right handed. It feels so weird to shoot a left handed bow for me. I got to shoot a left handed Dxt today, with the same draw length and poundage. It felt ackward. My right handed Dxt feels great to me and I love my Dxt.
