Should there be any concern about the angle of an arrow’s entry if the stand is 12 feet high?

at 12 feet above ground IN A TREE STAND do you have to be concerned about the ANGLE of the shot ; when bow hunting


I don't have any concern about the arrow's angle through a deer from a stand that's 12′ tall unless the deer is only a few yards from the stand.  I always draw an imaginary line through the deer and consider if the arrow's path will go through both sides of the vitals.  If the deer is only a yard or two from the tree the arrow has to enter high to insure it exits within the vitals on the deer's far side.
