    I havent missed very many animals in the last 5 yrs. or so but I missed two deer this year. I was pretty disappointed. I know I hit a limb one of them and I am pretty sure I hit one the other time too.

    Cant let it bother you.

    I had 2 misses this year. I hadn't missed a deer in 10 years until this year. 6 shots 4 deer. And 1 shot on a yote and got him. The 2 misses was I think due to a luminock. 1 that was last years model and I had 2 new ones the luminock that was older that arrow flew 5 yards hotter than the other 2 arrows I had in my quiver. The arrows all weighed the same a 383 grains so I don't know what was going on with it. I got rid of all the lumionocks and went back to GT's. Problem solved. I have one either sex tag left but I don't know if I will even go out anymore or not. We have indoor coming up soon and the Florida ASA Pro/Am is coming quickly. I might make it out this weekend for the last time so I might have another miss who knows.

    I missed a good sized doe high by quite a bit. I'm not sure what I was shooting at but it was not the animal, that's for sure.
    I also had a miss when my arrow deflected off a small branch/twig that I thought I would easily clear... Dohhhh !!! I had to change blades on both broadheads but the arrows and ferrules both survived unscathed...

    No misses for me this year. I haven't got a chance to pull the trigger. I didn't go out Sunday but got a call from the Landowner. He says, there were 14 deer in the food plot. :mad:

    Then he says 42 turkeys came through earlier in the day.:Cry:

    Not so good

    I missed 3 times in one stand in 2 hours. I dont know what I was doing wrong but I sucked out big time. I also missed a nice bear. I had just a little bear fever on that one.

    3 for 3 with the bow. 1 for 2 with the gun. I had a doe at 12 yards and put the scope right on her chest. I was picking out which hair, shot and she ran away just fine. Could not figure out how in the heck I missed. Turns out there was a branch about 4 inches in diameter about 3 inches from the end of the gun that I could not see through the scope. I blew the heck out of that branch. Clean miss on the deer, lucky for me. I am still totally dumbfounded by that miss, just glad it was a cleam miss on the deer, could have turned out not so good.

    1 Miss fall turkey. Stalking is a lot harder than hunting out of blind. ;)
    Used up all tags with no other misses.
