Aim right: Bull’s eye vs. bullseye vs. bulls-eye

With all of these different spellings of bull’s eye (or is it bullseye?), how do you when you’re on the mark with the right one?

The good news is that no matter which one you use, you’ll score a direct hit. All are acceptable spellings.

Check with your house or publisher’s style guide to determine which is preferred when you write a piece, though. For example, Associated Press style (which newspapers and many magazines use) calls for spelling it bull’s-eye.
