    I shoot a bear done deal. Had it since 2009. It seems like everytime I shoot it, I have to reAdjust my sight L or R

    What's moving? Put a dab of rubber cement on that part.

    If it's not a part that is coming loose, is it your form changing?

    Do you have a level on your sight? Sounds like you could be torquing it in some way?

    That could be the culprit.

    Torque or solid consistent anchor point?
    I was having issues with inconsistent patterns and it was due to my grip/torque was the issue.

    How often do you shoot? If you quit shooting after the season then start again in June or July keep you sight right where it is. Your muscles have to get use to shooting again after a week or two you should be back to where you were. It happens to me every year after hunting season I put the bow away and don't pick it up till July. Point of impact changes till I'm back in shape.

    You are more than likely torquing the bow. A level is a great thing to have on your sight but you can still keep level and be torquing. Some bow's grips are fairly critical and some are more forgiving. I have not shot the Bear you referred to so don't have an opinion on them.
    Try keeping your grip as consistent as you can. That includes finger placement and the force you're applying with them. Once you find a comfortable, consistent grip, you may have to re-adjust your sights.

    Hope that helps.

    It could be your arrow rest. make sure it's tight and holds the arrow in he same position each time. Just a little movement can make a difference.
