Just let it settle down for a couple days bro... You found the cattle trail they've made they'll be back you know once they show up there this time of year there not going far. He'll be back!

Spend your time where you get the most return on it...

Keep a spare in the bottom of the pack ever since I dropped mine from 15ft up and had the same expirience. Big Buck walking through had to shhot quick, just couldn't pull it back.

I velcro my release around my bow limb, and always leave my bow in a hard shell case. Years ago, I too left my release at home. now I don't. Hate that for you, bud.

Exactly Bowriter, when one becomes dependant on superfluous gear things like this are bound to happen.

I understand how he feels. It is sickening when you screw up an opportunity due to carelessness. I've done it too.

Practice with your fingers as well so this can be remedied!
Even if you practice with your fingers, and your bow is sighted with a release, your still going to not be accurate in shooting !

10 or more. Not sure. All I know is he was one of the biggest deer I've ever seen alive. The mass was unreal. Saying 140" is being conservative. He very well could have been much bigger. The few on here that know the area I hunted yesterday know how big the deer in this area get. I sure wish I was posting pics instead of a sob story! I have screwed up several biguns in this area over the years.

I buckle my release around my riser , that way the only way I forget
my release is I forget my bow. Hope this helps on the next time.

That is what I do. I always buckle my release to my bow even during the summer out of habit.

Sorry to hear that. It goes to show that you never know when it will happen. Just hate that it had to happen then. Question, did you aim 6" low on the second one??? \:\) Sorry, had to ask.
I pray to fish until my dying day. When it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray, when in the Lord's safe landing net & I'm at peace that in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.

Well, that is a pretty good reason not shoot a release, isn't it? I have never forgotten my fingers.
