However, the advantage for me is seeing a larger/wider view of the playing field.

However, once you get that 'go to' shot down, you can practice various cant angles to execute the variations the game and terrain dictate.

There is no 'written in stone' when it comes to shooting a bow except that you get out of it as much as you put into it.

No, its not the highest handicaps give the most advice....just beware of my way is the highway guys.

Bowhunting is NOT target archery.

If you only have one 'olympic' shot, you WILL miss out on opportunities in the field. I can give you example after example of kill shots I would have missed out on if I had to stand or cant in the same position. I have also witnessed many kill shots by other hunters that were way outside the box of an olympic archer.

As bowhunters, we do not get the perfect shot all the time, and we must manufacture and create shots as the terrain and vegetation throws everything in the book at us. The bowhunter needs more than one shot in his trick bag....he needs to be versatile....but that's up to each individual if he so chooses. I choose to dictate the shot, and not let the shot dictate me.

Get out there and mix it up.....its a lot of fun.

That means you rotate your wrist out and hook farther around the string, and when you draw everything will rotate back, and you'll have pressure holding the arrow on the shelf.

Easier shown than told.

Arrow flight has never been an issue for me....but the site picture changes.

Arrow Flight = one thing.....and Point of Impact = another.

I think the question is about Point of Impact rather than Arrow Flight.

What you have to learn is the site picture, either consciously or subconsciously depending on how you aim. You have to practice different cant angles to learn the different site picture. Easier to explain for me by showing rather than typing.

The only time my site picture really changes is when I reverse cant....to what ever degree I'm shooting...and the sight picture is different for a slight reverse cant than if I'm lying on my back.

Hey...I was just lookin' for a hat!....lol

Thanks, though. I remember the post I made, then. I was wondering how people settled on a particular position (cant). After talking to Rod (Jenkins) for a while, I went to a vertical bow. Whether it was that or something else, my accuracy improved, drastically. I've just never gone "back".

I can surely see the need....in some situations (like being able to wear the hat I want!!).

I'm gonna play with it. If I run into any problems....I'll yell!

No worries Jeff....This posting wasn't in reference to your thread....but another one that was brought back up from 2007.

Nothing wrong with vertical....but nothing wrong with being versatile either...lots of benefits!!!
