I've been practicing with my bow in anticipation of the upcoming season. Last year I never did get the practice arrows and the broadheads to hit in the same spot but they both grouped nicely - the broadheads were just 2" lower than the field points at 20 yards. I'm trying to decide whether or not to mess with it this year. Do you think that I'm sacrificing any accuracy or am I just a bit inconvenieced leaving it the way it is? The sights are set, of course, for the broadheads and I just aim a little low with field points.

I cant group arrows to within 2" so unless you can I wouldnt worry alot about it. 2" @ 20 yards isnt enough to worry about unless you are a competition shooter.

How far away are your shots usually? The difference might be enough that you will want to adjust your 40 yard pin but I wouldnt sweat the 20.

I shot a 3" group last night @ 20... thats pretty darn good for me.

If you really like the broadheads that you are using then find some heavier field points. If you don't care about the broadheads then see if you can find some lighter broadheads that will hit the same POI.
That is why they have both kinds of points in different weights.

To be clear, what I meant by 2" difference is the center of the field point group is 2" above the center of the broadhead group. The groups vary from about 2-4" so they clearly overlap but there is no doubt that the field points are hitting ~2" higher than the broadheads. I tend to agree regarding leaving them alone.

Where I am hunting this year, shot distance will likely be about 20 yards and I wouldn't take a shot beyond 30.
