Especially on the straight down shots. When shooting straight down (or straight up) gravity has very little effect on your arrow.
Your 5 yard pin also becomes your 50 yard pin when shooting straight up or straight down (no trajectory).
These are the extremes.
When shooting at all other angles the effects become less.
For example shooting at a deer that is 25 yards away while you're 15 feet off the ground will be almost the same as if you were standing on the ground. A deer standing directly under your stand, you will have to aim low if using a single pin sight system.
I practice every shot I can possibly get from each tree stand every year and it's always an eye opener/reminder.
