Shooting at objects downhill cause problems for alot of shooters. When I did competitive archery I went to many tournaments that had these types of targets. One thing that enters in is, When you are drawing your bow on a level target "which most practice" your body is straight up and down. Your anchor wether it be fingers, or a shooting release both find their spot. Now when you sight in at a Downhill target, How do you draw the Arrow? Do you bend at the waist look at the target and draw the bow? If you do there is a chance that your anchor will move because of the new position of your body. Alot of target shooters "on a downhill target" Pull the bow and anchor while looking straight ahead, then.. bend at the waist keeping your upper body and anchor point much more consistant. Try it and see. Lots of thing change when you draw a bow while in a bent position, draw length included. Try putting 4 arrows into a spot the size of a quarter, and you will see it takes practice. Good Luck.
