I was thinking, LOL, I call myself an instinctive shooter, yet I realize that my mind is recalling "a view" of my sight picture and applying it to the shot. Basically, a sight picture for a sight. So, if I narrowed my field of view horizontally, making my sight window smaller, only a little larger than needed, I could help my "mind sights" by making the refference points smaller. I recently switched to 3 under so therefore I have wasted sight window. Thoughts

Some folks do prefer a smaller sight window, seems that it "Frames Up" the target a bit better for them...I like it on a Hunting bow....Jim

I would be one of those people. I have a 13" Dryad riser that frames up my sight picture wonderfully.

I just bought a 25 inch Sky Conquest riser which works well for short draws. The riser has a large site window and I found myself shooting it better than my shorter site window bows. Just my experience I wouldn't hesitate to wax the riser and use it during hunting season. Ps. The Sky risers are really nice.

i'm in the long sight window line also. a short window restricts total vision way too much for the way i use the riser and arrow to aim. i always made my windows as long as possible on any bow i made myself to hunt with.

I don't see my riser,,,;^)

Ok,,,I see my riser, but I don't see it as far as sight window size is concerned.

What I see is the amount of cant on the side plate.
Any at all by the time I hit full draw and I let down, reset my hand on the bow and redraw.

The actual size of the sight window doesn't matter for me.

The actual size of the sight window doesn't really matter to me at all. When aiming, I reference the arrow, not the riser. Having said that, referencing the riser below the arrow does come in handy for longer distances. Whatever works for you. YMMV

For someone like me that has generally large gaps to deal with having a sight window which sets a max-gap limit would be beneficial for sure.
