When I was 17 or so I missed a small 4 point 3 times. All under 20 yards. One of the arrows hit a rock and shot sparks under the deer. It was awesome!! I ended up hitting it with the fourth shot...right thru the guts. Never found it. I haven't hit and lost a deer since.

I did the same thing but killed him later in the season. However, my worst shot was in the back leg. The string hit my jacket and caused the arrow to veer left. I ended up seeing that buck again in someone's truck during gun season with my broadhead still in him.

I've had some horrible ones. 2 does I've hit square in the shoulder and watched trot off with my arrow sticking way out. Never found them.

Another one was a long shot on a doe that tore her stomach open. My buddy and I tracked it in circles for like 5 hours - finding bits of intestine on briars. We ended up finding it still alive and I put her down. Tore me up inside.

In the end, we both scored that evening and brought our prizes across the river in a canoe. One of the most memorable hunts I've had. Learned a lot on that one.

I shot this deer the year before on opening day of the NC bowseason. Shot looked perfect. Quartering away at 27yds. Tracked him about 600yds total over 2 days. His antlers were identical, only he did'nt have the mass. My buddy killed him 3 days into muzzleloader season the following year out of the same stand I shot him. Look closely in the picture. bottom left, thats the scar from where I shot him right square in the shoulder. When we skinned him down, there was my Thunderhead 100 surrounded by a baseball sized mass of scar tissue. Looked just like it had just came out of the pack...No rust, no arrow. Funny thing is, my buddy was hunting about a month after I had shot him. He said, "I swear I just saw the deer you shot on opening day", he was crossing the highway about 500yds down from our land. We just figured it was a different deer.

Nope. The guy wanted to keep it.

Back when I hunted out of tree:

I shot a young doe one year at about 10 yards. After the shot she ran off and stopped. looking back. I then saw my arrow sticking out..... of a limb 15 feet off the ground. \:D The doe came back and I was able to make a clean shot and watched her fall.

The first deer I ever shot at was at 10 yards with my Bear Whitetail Hunter. Of course I shot over her back. That was back in the late 70's when seeing a deer in Claiborne Co was a thrill.

Mine was the shot without an arrow on the string. Perfect form and shot execution though.


Must be in the water here cause I did the same thing last yr.
