you should always bend at the waist to shoot out of a tree stand if you can.Always wear a saftey belt doing this.try to stand as soon as you hear the deer I can shoot sitting down out of my ladder stand cuz it dont have a front rail and i have a short bow.
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
