HELP!! Can't miss again!!
Just started stand hunting this year. My optimal shot comes at 22 yards. I use a single pin sight that is dead on @ 20yds (ground level). My stand is approx. 20ft high. What should my aiming point be? High, low or dead on.

If shooting anything close to 250 fps I would just hold dead on the spot right behind the shoulder if broad side, further back for quarteing away say mid section of kill, right and left ,and then collect me some savory meat. by the way deer is lower in colestorl and fat than chicken,so Hunt Healthy & Straight Shootin, Holy Smokes we need an smiley that says CHOMP^ love dem smileys^

I would suggest you get some practice in from that height and then you will know where to aim. We all owe it to our game to practice in real hunting scenerio's. I have not got much experience hunting from treestands but believe you will probably hit a little high if you are sighted in from ground level and shooting from 20ft up. Something about gravity or trajectory or something Good luck and bag a big one bud.

I would suggest setting up a stand in your yard the same height as the one in the woods and stoot at different distances

I will be doing some practice out of my hunting stands. On 11-02-06 I was 12ft up a tree and was shooting down a West Virginia hillside at exactly 30yards at a deer and used my 30yd pin and sailed an arrow over her back. But, later I stuck her mother at 15yrds with my 20yrd pin and had a high hit and a delayed recovery the next morning for my first archery deer. The angles out of tree stand and being on a steep slopinig hillside will definitely make a difference. The only way I know how to compensate for this is to practice. I will be practicing more.

Take some practice shots and bend at the waist. If you don't bend at the waist, your shots will be high. I'm also guessing that the straightline distance is less than 22 yards.
