Central PA... best thing to do is set your target up and climb up a tree. Like these guys said.. bending at the waste is huge. Get up in a tree and shoot at different yardages. Get used to bending, and create situations for yourself.

Not trying to start something, but If your arrow is already going to hit high, you DO NOT want to hold high as it will hit even higher. You want to hold a little low, because the arrow is going to hit higher than you expect. Trust me, you want to aim a touch lower than normal on both uphill and downhill(treestands) shots. Below is an article on this, in case you don't trust me.
A direct quote from this article - "Just remember to always aim lower, because any slant range shot, either downhill or uphill, will be higher than if it were a horizontal shot."
However, if you have a range finder that has angle compensation, then you trust the range finder and aim dead nuts for what the range finder says.
