Lightbulb I would to add a cou

I would to add a couple of small sstgeugions even though I am not sure this is the place to do it.1. Fewer excepts from books and more reviews. If I want excerpt, I will trundle down to the local book store and read one.2. When we click on a hyper link, have it open a new window and leave us on your site. I think you will find that more people get to the bottom of the page that way.Unlike your secret admired, I enjoy the site.

I will add that I believe some bow shooters do the adjustment instinctively and don't consciously adjust.

50 yards is 50 yards whether it's from a treestand to target or ground to target, 50 yards is 50 yards
the Aim stays the same, you should aim at Vitals from stand level the same way you would from ground level.
This is what's always worked for me.
All I'm saying is the only thing that changes from a treestand vs. ground level is distance but 50 yards is 50 yards.

Default February is my favou

February is my favourite month, there is just so much Love! I am so exeictd about valentines this year. It is our first as a married couple so I have lots of wonderful things planned for my husband. We decided we are going to host a valentines dinner party with our bestest friends where we will dine on heart-shaped rolls with our soup, dips in my red valentine ramekins, and we'll have mini heart brownies and a big heart strawberry ad cream sponge cake. Then we will go late into the night drinking red wine and playing silly games... And there is one rule to our party, one must wear red!I've been fretting about what to wear as I realised the only red I have in my wardrobe is oversized cardies and I want to look glamorous for this!So please give me this beautiful dress!

Here's what I'm saying. In this example the only thing that needs consideration is Distance. the Aim from the treestand (slightly high 10 yd. pin)
If this hunter is on the ground then he would need to aim the same way (slightly high 10 yd. pin)
But if the treestand to target or ground to target were both 50 yards, then both shots would use a 50 yd. pin with no compensation at all.
Does this make better sense? because I'm terrible at describing in text form. LOL

If you had a pin for every yard on your bow, in that pic you would use you 13 pin while on the ground. right? What I'm getting from what you are saying is you use the 15 pin from the tree. When I would say use the 13 pin from the tree. yes? no? or level out 13 yards is what buckshot, i think, was saying.

Yes, 13 yd pin from ground.
and Yes 15 yd. pin from tree.

But we dont have that many pins, so in my diagram I would use my 10 yd pin and aim slightly high from 13 or 15.
Isn't that what you would do?

Default Ah, someone beat me

Ah, someone beat me to it.I'm new to the area, and nratually very inquisitive about geological formations. Hiked up to Blanca Lake on Sunday. Stunning, and well worth the (substantial) effort but the mountains are not a forgiving place.I ask locals about lahar all the time, and only one or two have had the slightest idea of what I'm talking about.I guess it'll have to happen for people to realize the power of that mountain.

i would shoot that deer using my 13 pin both from the ground and from the tree. even though the range finder says 15 yards while in the tree. with the compensating range finders it would say its 15 yards but shoot as if it was 13 while in the tree.
