Default Another crossbow question

I must be doing something wrong. I'm pretty certain on my ranges but I've shot under 2 different deer. 1 was around 20 yds and the second was probably just inside of 30yds. The bolts, shot from a tree stand, went right under them directly behind the front leg. I feel like some kind of idiot! Both times I was holding at the back edge of the shoulder.
On flat ground this thing's shooting dead on. Should I be holding higher? Unfortunately, I don't have access to a place to shoot this Xbow from a tree in practice. When shooting rifles, pistols or shotguns, I don't have to worry about too much drop, but this thangs another story.

He took me!
Thanks Dad.
Wish you were here.
