Re: Deviation

It would vary too much depending on how I was sitting and which eye I was using. We also traded off with one of my friends taking sites and we just couldnt remember who did which. We actually did try to correct for it because the computer cave mapping program will adjust shots to force a closure dividing the "error" up between all the shots or between shots you select but it made no difference, the last shot didnt come within 90 degrees of closing and many feet off.
AT that time, I could push my glasses up and look under them at the compass by my eye cuz my glasses were often so fogged I couldnt see and I think it was how much I pushed em up that caused so much difference between shots.
