Yup . . . .
That’s why one should sight-in so as to put the POI at the top of the POA!
When using any round bull as a target, the so-called “Navy Hold”, or putting the top of the front sight blade in the CENTER of the bull, (NOT 6 o’clock) is the way to go.
Likewise, when using a bead front sight, COVERING the bull (or game animal) with the bead is appropriate.
