Do you prefer standing or sitting for your shot?

I used to prefer standing but now like shooting from a sitting position in my stand or ground blind.

I perfer standing but I

I perfer standing but I practice standing and kneeling since if I do use a stand it is one that I just throw together in some trees and if I was sitting I would be on the ground.

It is different shooting from

It is different shooting from a sitting position, but as I practiced from that position more, I've found it to be more stable and I am more comfortable in the stand sitting for long periods of time instead of standing.

I prefer tio shoot standing

I prefer tio shoot standing up.  With that said though I practice from sitting and neeling just as much from a standing position.  I always feel you never know what the heat of the moment will bring for you.

I can't shoot standing up in

I can't shoot standing up in my ground blind so I have no choice but to sit and shoot.  I have learned to sit in the stand in a position that allows me to shoot.  When standing you can adjust your position a bit without getting caught by the deer, but I find it harder to move into the right position from sitting so I need to be in the right position when the deer comes in.

Sorry I did not realize that

Sorry I did not realize that you were just refering to ground blinds, but when it comes to a blind I prefer to shoot from my knees...I seem to be a little more stable.

I wasnt just talking about

I wasnt just talking about the blind, but also the stand too.  I just kind of shifted gears on you without putting on the turn signal I guess :)

I like to shoot from a prone

I like to shoot from a prone or a sitting position.  I can shoot standing up if I have a good rest, but I am not a good free hand shooter at all.

Smarta$$.... lol

For some reason I thought I was in the firearm forum, and we were just talking about guns.  Your initial post does not mention a bow.....

Yeah, it didn't mention a bow, but I thought that it was in the archery section might be a hint Big smile

I am sorry, but I couldn't resist when I saw your post even though I knew what you were talking about.
