Shoot lower than when on level ground.

All the tips in the link above are good. I have used most of them. I range all sorts of stuff while I am in the tree so when a deer comes out I know how far away it is. Practice by taking a range on a tree both at the ground and at eye level with you in the stand to see the difference.

That's what I would do if you can, set one up in the yard and practice from it.
