Do you practice shooting your bow from a seated position? Most bowhunters don’t, and most bowhunters will get caught flat-footed, or maybe we should say flat-bottomed, at some time during the season.
How a 200-plus pound whitetail can appear in bow range out of nowhere is one of the worlds big mysteries, but chances are you are going to be faced with having to take a seated shot. Next time you’re practicing, take a small stool and make several rounds of shots while sitting. Even better, if you can hook up the seat section of your tree stand and shoot seated from that, even if just a foot or two off the ground, do it. This little bit of practice will make all the difference in the world, especially for an early season hunt. Preparation and practice will help you increase your chances of harvesting that big buck this season.
