How important is it to paper tune with the target and paper at shoulder height? I don't have access to do so except to put the target on the bed and shoot from the hall! Besides possible flaws in form how important is it to be at shoulder height?

Shoulder height is best. This is what I use in my home shop:

Built it using less than $25 in 2x4s, caster wheels, and a couple of hook screws. Built the paper tuning stand using 1-1/2" pvc, #18 O-rings, tape, screws, kotter pins (to hold the paper roll in place). This is what I can do with bows I tune:

I dont have a proper paper tuning rack so I just leave the target on the floor, but I also sit on the floor to get the paper shoulder height.

But depending on your bow's ATA this may or may not work. Pay attention to that bottom cam if you try this method.

I'd put it on the bed and shoot from the hall. You want to be shooting straight, not at any kind of angle.
