I very much prefer to stand where possible..

But, better practice shooting while sitting in case you get caught offguard.
Plus, you will need to know how to shoot whilst on your arse if you plan to hunt from a ground blind.

When I was still able, most of the time I would be able to stand up before taking a shot due to hearing them coming. I had many times that I'd stood up only to see a squirrel coming, but I was ready.

Rat, in a ground blind if you're sitting on something at least six inches high you can put your legs back a bit and be ready to kneel when the time comes. More comfortable to shoot, and helps ensure your lower limb doesn't smack the ground. It worked for me anyway.

Careful consideration while placing stands can help your odds on anticipating and standing up
without being detected. R2 and I hung a stand Friday b4 the gtg that will be deadly..
nice natural funnel with plenty of concealment while still being able to see and anticipate well in advance...

Tis a killer stand placement and I fully expect pics from him in the next month. :banana:

Like HFFF said, you have to remember to bend at the waist!

Personally I am not comfortable shooting while sitting. So I have never shot at a deer sitting. I have practiced sitting and I am just not as accurate. If I can't stand without spooking a deer I will just sit and admire and hope I get a chance to get another shot!

I've never tried sitting and shooting at a deer with a bow. I usually stand. I guess that's why they call it a stand.

I have alway stood until last year, the deer did not give me a chance to stand He ran into the wood stopped broadside I swung bow over to the right and shoot while setting. I actually liked it better then standing because I did n ot have to think about the shot or study the deer.

I try to stand as much as a I can, but I tend to face my stand 30 to 45 degrees away from where I expect the deer to show up so I can whack 'em sitting if I didn't get a chance to stand.

I tend to stand in my stand as much as I can and still keep my movement down.

How high up from the ground are you going to be? I usually try to stand if, but depending on the situation, sometimes it seems better to stay seated. One example is if you think you might get busted attempting to stand- especially if you aren't very high up. If you are already sitting, there is a lot of movement in standing.
