    about getting busted in your tree stand : last week I was in my tree stand and seen a buck about60 yards away, wind was good but this buck busted me looking at him with binoculars . He wandered off so after some time I got down went to were he was and looked at my tree stand… guess what ..some of the leaves had fallen off and I was silhouetted against the sky, good spot for wind direction but bad for concealment from deer eye view

    Draw your bow back in a mirror and lower your arm and keep the anchor where you initially put it. Then look at the kink where your release or fingers are. That’s whats making your shots inconsistent high,low left and right. Keep the torso square lean toward the target and shoot like you normally would and you wont have an issue. If you are a non believer try it physics don’t lie. Hunt’em Hard and legal!

    You shouldn’t have to shoot high while shooting out of a tree stand. The reason for your arrow shooting low or high while in a stand is the angle of your arm and the tension on the string from the release or fingers. When the anchor is anchored on the corner of your mouth and you are closing the radius by dropping your arm without adjusting your torso you’re putting stress on the string. Solution to that would be to keep your torso square and aim like you’re pouring out a pot of tea. Hunt hard!

    how many pounds is the six year old pulling back. i know alot of states its 30 to 35 in orders to hunt. Depending on draw length also most cases need to be pulling back 40 pounds. Find it hard to believe a kid in first grade pulling back a bow with enough poundage and draw length to ethically kill a deer. The reason these vids are made is to educated the uneducated into make better choices and not just fling arrows at deer and hope for the best or get lucky.

    It all depends on where u hunt in heavally hunted areas the deer do not let u get close to get a shot off its like the difference betreen a animal that lives in the city and one that lives in the wild forrest you most be hunting. suburban de er that are not scared of getting close to humans

    Maybe not but I don’t really believe in luck. The biggest problem i see with bowhunters is lack of practice too much bow and unfamiliarity in there equipment. From my experience bowhunting you get out of it what you put into it. I think there would be less unfataly hit deer if more hunters would quit trying to shoot fast and shoot comfortable capable equipment

    I don’t understand why people feel the need to do videos like this as if they are an authority on the subject my wife. Took a deer with a bow her first time in the standard a friend of mines two young sons successfully harvested deer last year with walmart Barnett bows one of who was six it is not that difficult

    Actually its best to fetch the arrows yourself when your practicing in your stand. It forces you to practice getting in and out of it, and gives you a little exercise.

    ike? when hunting from a treestand is it best to stand up when ready to shoot or to stay seated. and when u shoot a bow sitting down wouldnt your anchor point change a little bit. that happend to me this year when i was hunting from a blind and it caused me to shoot high

    it’s just some cheap stand I bought last year at Walmart. I do like the seat and it is comfortable.

    Ike? What stand is that? I love how you can basically swivel your butt around to shoot. I’m purchasing a new stand very soon and I would like to look into one such as that… any help?
