You need that to happen every now and then to keep you focused. It will make you practice more.

It definitely makes you focus more!  LOL

Yep, thinking you're invincible with your bow in hand is a sure recipe for disaster.  I enjoy taking some long shots during target practice, and I do think it's a good way to improve your overall form, but in the woods I'm a one-pin guy and have never taken a shot at a deer beyond 25 yards.  Call me a big sissie if you will, but in all honesty most of the areas I bowhunt are thick enough that even 25 yard shots are unlikely.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
