Whats the difference from shooting from the ground and out of the tree? I mean I know the obvious like angle but if I shoot 2inch groups on the ground will they still be that way from a tree? I have a matthews outback and I shoot well from the ground but I am curios how it will do from the tree. Where do I aim higher lower how do I or do I compensate the angle? My bow shoots really fast and flat does that make a difference? Any help will be appreciated.

Only one way to find out for sure. Climb up in a stand and shoot. Nobody else can tell you how you and your bow will perform. That is like asking how will my gun shoot that was sighted in by someone else. You have to have first hand experience.

The main thing to keep in mind is proper form and bend at the waist rather than dropping your bow arm to aim downward.

Take a 3-D target and practice shooting from different heights and positions . I like to aim lower for extreme angled shots . The key is to keep your form by bending at the waist .

I have never done this. But I try to mark each my area out to abot 30 yrds. The reason I even asked this question was I used to bow hunt alot when I was young and the last deer I remember missing I shot at from the tree the dang arrow went over his back dont know if I just misjudged the deer or if it was something else I done worng but since I am getting the chance to hunt again with a bow I dont want to make the same mistakes again. Thanks

I have had more trouble with this than ever this year. I have my bow sited in so it is hitting about 1.5 inches low out on the range. Now that being said, I have had two shots out about 28-30yards. Both times I had my pin set at 25yards(it is an adjustable sight) So on a deer that is 30yards I should aim dead on. Not the case apperantly. I've missed high twice. I shoot at least 3-4 times a week so I know the bow is on. What the heck is going on here. Now I know that one of those shot was down hill so I might be able to understand that one, but missing deer high that are 30 yards with a 25 yard pin. ????????????
