I've been busy shooting and preparing my rifle for an upcoming dall sheep hunt and have a question in regard to shooting at steep angles? If a ram is 200 or 300 yards down a 45 degree slope would you allow for the same drop as 200 or 300 yards with a flat shot? A rangefinder would likely show the same distance for both but does gravity pull differently on a steep slope? I've heard to hold a little low when shooting down a steep grade but is this correct?
Question 2, if faced with the same shot but shooting 45 degree angle up a steep hill would you aim a little higher? Hopefully there are some avid sheep hunters/guides out there that can answer this question!
