I, too, am a new hunter in Arkansas. This is my first season and I have certainly scared off a few deer this year. My problem is movement. This may sound like a rather juvenile question, but how am I supposed to look around if I don't move? Two other quesitons: First, by moving farther up the tree, am I not shortening the circumference of my shooting range? My father (God love him) tried to tell me that 20 yds is the same from the ground or 20 ft. up in a tree. Second, he someone also told me that arrows tend to rise a little during the shot. This seems rather counterintuitive to me. I've never shots consistently rise during targets...why should they when hunting from elevation?
I try to stay in between 18 to 20 feet provided I have good cover. Sometimes I have to go in between 20 to 25 depending on the terrain. Any higher than that and you're really messing with your shot angle and that could present a problem. Welcome to the site. TA HYBRIDSHey everybody, I'm new to this forum and wanted to introduce myself.I hunt in Arkansas and wanted to know how high does everyone get in the tree while bowhunting.
