    Uphill/downhill shots - generally you set sights for a shorter target, or aim lower on the target.

    If adjusting body to aim, use unit aiming. Come to full draw, and move from the waist, moving arms and hands destroys the draw force line.

    What I was told was you are always taking off distance going up and down hill. If you take varying sightmarks then you should get a fairly predictable spread.

    Ie. I know that at 45 yards up an incline of about 20 - 30 degrees I can use my 40 yard mark.
