I can shoot nearly 360 degrees ( minus the tree ) while standing ,and about 180 while sitting down.


One of my favorite shots is directly behind my tree, while sitting, with the bow. That shot just feels really good to me.

I have sat for 30% of my bow kills. I would prefer to stand, for the increased mobility. But your movements must take place at the right moments... and slowly.

Yep i have tried it many ways but the sooner you can get into position once you know they are in the area the better because you eliminate all of the movements at once. I cant tell you how many times this has worked but i have over 50 archery kills to my credit with a compound and probably 90 + % were taken in this manner......

Not hard shot to shoot to the left , but try that shot to your right side behind the tree while sitting down . \:\)

I have killed just over 100 deer with a bow. I try to get ready as soon as I believe a deer is approaching. I have killed over half of my deer from the ground so (other than 6 deer I shot while kneeling on one knee) I was always standing. I try to always stand when in a tree stand, it gives you better mobility.

I probably have killed 90% of bow deer while shooting from a sitting position. The only shot I can't make is the one directly behind the tree.

great replies. I am a HUGE fan of shooting deer when sitting. I practice several angles both sitting and standing. I shoot better and stay a lot calmer when sitting. I stand only if I have too. I believe if I set my stand right that most of my shots will be from The sitting position. slow methodical movement is the key to bow hunting.

Is that a challenge Rader? I can easily make that shot to the right and around the tree! But, I am Left Handed.
The left around the tree is the "Impossible" one for me. Gottca Bro!

Well said there Richman. I also try to position my stand in a manner that I can make most shots while seated.
