    I went out to actually practice my in betweens tonight and I suck when I don't have a pin to put on the spot and the wind didn't help one bit:doh: . Anyway, I always forget this, so, When aiming up hill or down hill, am I suppose to be aiming High or Low? Any tips on practicing the in betweens or is it just all about practice?

    i usea a high low sysyem wheels,

    If it is 23 -25 I hold a little high, now that is something you will have to determine with your pictular setup. How high or how low. Like that shot is a high 20 or a low 30, if is twenthy five.. you chose.

    This allows for a solid pin on some part of your target. Not guessing on thin air.

    Well hope this helps ya some. i am sure others will have a way that they feel comfortable with. Try em all and se which one you loke tha bestest.:biggrin1:

    As far as shooting down hill your arrow will tend to hit the target a little high. Usually I can use my 20 yard pin for a 30 yard shot if I am elevated 15 or 20 feet in a tree stand. For shooting up hill the opposite is true your arrow will tend to hit low, therefore you need to aim a little higher. That’s one of the best parts of 3D archery, estimating your yardages and compensating for the uphill and downhill shots. You just need to practice those types of shots.

    the reason most people shoot low on uphill targets has to do w/not staying commited thru the hole shot and droping there arm......:noidea:

    I was told to take off yardage to downhill shots and add yardage for uphill. But I found this technique doesn't work well for me. :doh:

    What I have been doing is just shooting what I have guessed the yardage to be. Since I will be off on judging it anyways.
    IMO --- Every bow/arrow set up is different and will act differently when shot at different angles. Knowing what your set-up does at what angles is the key. In my case: Unless you are shooting at drastic angles up or down, adjusting yardage/pin shouldn't matter --- I expect a 5 and be happy with an 8 :biggrin1:

    Thanks Wheels for bringing this up cause I felt silly asking but not now LOL. When we're shooting indoors those high and low targets give me lots of grief. I have done a tad better since I had my levels on my sight adjusted BUT do i bend at the waist or just do the aim high or low with my bow? I kinda tried to just actually aim with the bow arm and it seemed better than bending at the waist. What you think?

    I have been told you are suppose to bend at the waist, but I have a hard time with that, since it is just easier to move my bow arm. But I think it changes your anchor point or something doing it this way. :noidea:
