I totally agree jph, rushing the shot will make a bowhunters practice perfect shot, a perfect miss! I know all too well, I've missed my share! Ugnasty; Shooting low at a deer's vitals also help's when they try to jump the string. 8uck5nort; So when your shooting from a higher angle, you shoot a little high to compensate for the greater angle? This way your arrow will pass through both lungs?
That is the theory anyway.
Clip the top side of the entry lung and get a solid hit on the other. However, this year I have kept all my climbing stands under 20' right around 16 to 17 feet. I'm finding that too high is just as bad as too low when it comes to stand/climber height. There seems to be a "sweat spot" for me at least.
Both does I got this year wear still a little high on the entry side but solid on the exit. I guess old habits are hard to break. The two bucks I have missed this year were due to rushed shots from buck fever and not shot angle. Had I taken my time and calmed myself I'm sure I would have put a good hit on either. I'm still working on the "find your peace when you see horns on a deer I know I want to shoot" thing. Still learning.[:)]
