Hi, I am new to the forum and I am looking into bows right now and I am pretty sure that I have narrowed it down to the PSE Brute X or the Bear Legion.

My yard of about 1.8 acres is pretty hilly with a big hill in the back yard which goes down into a ravine in the woods so I was wondering that once I get a bow, if I sight in a bow shooting downhill into the ravine into the woods, will the sight still be on target on level ground since I would have sighted it on a hill?

And I was looking for some opinions on the Legion?
Thanks in advance

Yes if you keep proper form. The only way for you to know is to try it though. You also have to account for the angle when it comes to distance.

Here's what I would do, If you cant shot flat, shoot on the side hill aspect, make sure you keep the sight bubble level though.

Sight settings will not be the same on flat ground vs slopes. This has nothing to do with form and everything to do with physics. I will try to post the link, but search youtube for Dave Cousins-Interview & Shooting Tips (Part 1). He clearly demonstrates this................http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3XeaWt7huQ
