I always try to. I've shot from elevated decks at peoples homes, the roof of my house, hung treestands, but Tuesday night was a new first. I shot from this:


Did you go all the way to the top or the next level down? Man that looks like it would be awesome, especially if you had a haul line and someone at the bottom to pull your arrows and sent them back up to you.

My upstairs porch is the same height as my ladder stands so I sight my bow in from it.

At 20 yards Im a little low when shooting from the ground but beyond that it isn't enough to worry about.


I go about it the opposite direction to get the same result. I sight in a little low at 20 and it is on from stand. I do this out to my 40ish yard pin then hit 50 & 60 right on the dot.

I don't practice from an elevated platform. Best thing I do is shoot a 3d before season (tomorrow) to get use to holding on stuff in the woods, picking spots not dots and shooting different positions/footing.

Honestly, I just don't let myself over think it. It is not a big deal or hard to take angle into consideration, in fact, I usually just rely on my intuition in this department. I think a lot of bow hunters let aspects like that psych them out. In other words, if anything is different from their practice routines, it throws them off.


I agree with you, Poser. Too many people major in the minors and get all psyched with details like this that really don't amount to a hill of beans. Just maintain your form, focus on a hair, bend at the waist, release and follow thru. Then drag! ;\)

As I age it's harder to make stand shots with the same form as on the ground no matter how much I try and bend at the waste. Because my form changes instead of trying to force myself into it I just go with it. From a stand I shoot a little left and an inch to two high, just how it is so I sight in from there.

I didn't shoot from the top, but the next level down. I shoot a longbow, so I had to shoot through the slats. Thought I might be asking for trouble shooting through the iron railing.

I do because i like to make it as "real" as possible but as long as a man is shooting arrows from where ever it makes for a good time. Can't wait for my son to get strong enough to shoot with me.
