Anyway, hopefully this won't be a criticized question as well but what do you mean by bending at the hips?


Sorry mossy, I'm just old school, I just start shooting. One thing the guys didn't talk about was safety, always use a safety belt. If you forget it dont' climb you ass up that tree its not worth it. I suggest you start small and shoot from your tailgate then find a shed to climb on and then maybe your house. Get comfortable then use the treestand. But be smart set up your stand about two feet off the ground and get comfortable with your safety belt like leaning out with it and movin around. Also step away from you stand in the sunlight and make sure you have no shiney spots. Good luck :thumbsup:

:hijacked:

Somehow this got off topic. To answer the original question, bend at the waist so you don't change your anchor point and you should be fine. If you plan to do alot of shooting from a tree, I'd suggest checking out a pendulum site. I've been using one for years and it sure takes the guessing out of judging yardage from a tree. I've always struggled at judging yardage from above.

Now, back to the hi-jack....Yes, deer do duck. There's plenty of videos out there where they slow down the shot frame by frame to show deer ducking.

I had one duck at 8 yards this year. I still got him, but he most definately ducked. I don't shoot a slow bow and she's not loud. But, everyone is entitled to their opinion even if they're wrong.

im gonna stand on the edge here. there is truth in both of you i guess. do deer duck arrows. yes, occasionally, its never happen to me but ive seen it. will they duck at 8 yards. no, not my bow. sorry slicendice but if you would have said the same about 20 yds. i could see that, but either that deer had you pegged and was ducking as you shot or your bow is slow.
