I used to have a stand and climbing sticks set up for practice til they all got stolen. Now I just shoot from the roof for the last month before season starts. It definitely helps. I try to go the extra mile and set up my 3D deer in a brush line with just a small window exposing the vitals.

This easter Im going to the inlaws. Was asked to bring my bow, any targets I have and my tree stand for some friendly competition. Sounds like fun and I get to try out my new climber

We have a practice stand out back. It is in a tough area to shoot and gives us a great challenge. Then we put one in the front yard for long range. Next month we will probably start shooting. We also use the blind in the side yard.

Never hunted from a stand, but if I did I'd set one up in the yard and practice from it for sure. It's a whole different kettle of fish shooting from above ground at different angles.

I have one set up year round in the back yard. With safety rope and harness. Really is amazing taking your first shots from stand b4 you warm up. I walk to a point in the yard and throw one of the cheap block targets like you get at GM or Dick's. Up the stand I go and take a few shots, sometimes in hunting cloths but not always. Very enlightening!;) I have 2 deer targets (3d) set up to move around for different shots also.

I'm gonna set both my deer tagets and the block out and practice more w BHs this year. One will be set broadside,the other quartering away. I don't range them til after I shoot. I hunt @ 18-20ft(max) and I want to practice out to 40yds. My hunt locations rarely allow anything over 20yds and a few I have 15yrd shots if I'm lucky.

I practice shooting out of a stand a few months before bow season comes in! But I practice shooting all year a few days a week!
