Default hang em high

The best way to determine the height to hunt from is to look at the tree from ground level without looking up. You can see up the tree about 10-15 feet with your perifial vision, this is what a deer will see. I like to go about 10 feet or so higher than I can see from the ground. This is why I like to hunt 20 feet or higher. I hunt alot of hillsides so Im usually closer to 30 feet to get out of the deers line of sight. In most cases I believe 20 feet is high enough to get your bow without the deer catching you.
