Lancaster Archery Supply TechXPert P.J. Reilly discusses how shot angles are affected by bowhunting deer from an elevated tree stand. Reilly spells out proper shot placement on a deer from ground level to achieve a quick, ethical kill.Then, he shows how arrow placement must change to account for the height in a tree from which a hunter shoots at a deer, and the distance between the hunter and the deer. Knowing the relationship between height, distance and shot angles is critical knowledge for all bowhunters.
