Re: tree stand shot with x bow
One mistake new crossbow shooters make is to aim like it's a rifle. Looking down the stock, through the scope, it's almost instinct for a rifle shooter to aim right behind the shoulder and the lower 3rd of the chest. A fatal heart shot with a rifle. With a crossbow from a tree, this could end up being a low, single-lung hit. With a bow, I naturally aim in the middle of the chest (height-wise).
