Default Double Lung possible?

I'd like to see what you guys think is the maximum height in a tree that you could be and still achieve a good double lung on a 20 yard shot. Just for reference, a shot that hits the very top of the near lungthen the very bottom of the far lung isNOT a good shot. A good shot here means the hit is 2 inches inward from any outer-most edge ofboth lungs. Consider that the ground below you is completely flat and that the deer is perfectly broadside at 20 yards.

The low and high numbers are there just for the extreme measurespossibly insomeone's mind.

For the very experienced or good at math, tell me how bigthe kill zone diameter is in inches if you are to hit both lungs as described above and of course at what height.

do the math.....say lungs are 6" apart outside to outside. Say they are 8" high, 2" inside that leaves 4" in height to traverse in 6" of horozontal. Thats 2 to 3. 20 yard horozontal means 60 feet......how high can you get to still get a douple lung shot with your criteria?40 FEET (approx). of course that is leaving no margin of error

It just gets harder, smaller, as you go higher....for a ways
