Did anyone see the De Cristo guy who owned Lone Wolf treestands talk about bow hunting lower to the ground?

Less of a shooting angle,for better kills.etc.
He hunts about 8- 10' of the ground,and kills giants.

I normally climb very high,but am planning on dropping to about 12-14 ft this year with a bow.

Probably go up to 25 ft. with a gun.

Typically, I hunt from 15 to no more than 20. Depends on the cover and wind. I understand the angle conception but I have never had any real issues with that. Plan Plan Plan the shot.
