pick a spot like a bowhunter and aim small.  we all have missed.  keep at it, and always track your deer out as sometimes they don't appear to be shot but are.

 @--0--0117 Who knows why some misses happen. Chalk this one up to experience. Go over in your mind the circumstances and glean what you can from it. Better luck next time. %^$^

Hang in there, We all miss a deer at times. I don't even want to say how long it took me to tag my first deer, Once I tagged the first one, I have gotten 2 each year and passed on several that were young  in each season. -00-9 Now if I can get my first turkey this coming year. Did not start Turkey hunting until a couple of years ago @--0--0109 @--0--0104

My dad used to say  "everyone misses, it's just not everyone admits it!".  You used that line for a lot of things, but it is definitely true for missing a deer!

We all miss sooner or later just keep up the practice and remember to pick a small stop on the animal to aim at don't just aim at the whole animal. Count that deer as a learning experience and another good story to tell.
Hunting is not just recreation it's a way of life
