"Whether you shoot a compound
or a high powered rifle, the challenge is the same.
Unless you remember to compensate
by aiming LOW, you'll miss HIGH."
Uphill: Intuitively, most bowhunters would not expect the same situation
when shooting uphill as they would downhill. However, from an aiming
standpoint, they are nearly identical. Your arrow will hit HIGH unless you
aim LOW. A 40 yard shot up a 30 degree slope requires you to aim as if
the intended target were only 35 yards away. If the up-slope is a more
gradual 20 degrees, aim as if the target were 38 yards away.
his is an
of a 40 yard
shot downhill at
a 30 degree angle.
Aim at 33 yards.
Downhill: When shooting down a 30 degree slope, you must use
your 33 yard pin to hit the mark at 40 yards. Most bowhunters would
not allow for this much compensation - A factor that has, no doubt,
contributed to the longevity of more than one trophy Bull Elk or
wide-racked Muley. If the down-slope flattens to 20 degrees,
you must treat a 40 yard shot as if it were only 37 yards.
So now what?
Most hunters certainly don't want to take a scientific calculator
and a list of trigonometry equations into the field with them. They
need a product that will quickly give them answers. Slope-Shot
is a newly designed inclinometer with a unique "push and hold"
device that easily holds the needle allowing for an accurate
reading of any slope. Once the angle and distance to target is
found, the Cut-Chart provided enables the hunter to quickly
and accurately determine the corrected distance to a target
located up or down a hill. This information becomes
even more critical for long shots in steep terrain.

needle is pointed at zero when
the rangefinder is level.
!! ATTENTION !!
Though the provided Cut-Chart should adequately
accommodate most of today's archery setups there may be
slight variations. The Cut-Charts are for a bow shooting a 400 grain
arrow at 280 fps (feet per second). Even if your setup is different,
any bow shooting within 60 grains and 40 fps should only see
a difference of ±1 yard/meter. Additional Cut-Charts can
be printed from our Cut-Chart page. We also have
a Cut-chart for rifles and muzzle loaders.
