How High Should a Stand Be?

I always try to hang my treestands between 18 and 22 feet off the ground. This is high enough to be out of the peripheral vision of the deer, which is about 16 feet, but low enough to get a good shot angle on a passing buck. Any higher and shot angles become difficult, as you need to shoot out both lungs on a deer for a clean kill. Also, the higher you go up a tree the smaller the target becomes, as the angle needed to take out both lungs becomes smaller.
