Thread: Shooting from an Elevation - Chart

  1. #1

    Shooting from an Elevation - Chart

    Does anyone know where I can find a chart or table that demonstrates what the horizontal shooting distance is to a target from various heights based on the actual distance (hypothenuse)?



    I know this is basis trigonometry, but I figured why re-invent the wheel and work on my SIN COS TAN when someone probably already had a table made.

    Thanks Boys.

    Get one of those arc rangefinders. It will be a lot easier that way. Nice charts though.

    Thanks for these guys.

    Do you have a chart that shows height (rather than angle)?

    i.e. If you know the angle between the tree and the ground is 90, you know your height and the distance from you and target, the distance from the base of the tree to the target would be.....

    trig

    On here a million times. a squared plus b squared = c squared. honestly, unless you are over 20 feet in the air and shooting less than 15 yards, just cut a yard and call it good. 99.9% of hunters cannot shoot well enough to know the difference between a 30 yard shot and 27 or 35 yards. Unless you are on a steep hill (over 30 degrees) you are just spending a lot of time adjusting for a distance that your pins can't adjust to anyways. 3-4 yards either way is still going to be in the kill zone.

    Nice range finder if we could see it. I know it must be one of the new camo jobs with the visable camo ( just kidding). Range finder with arc is the best way to go though.
