Same thought crossed my mind. I haven't missed a deer since I was 16. maybe I am too fussy over the shots I will take.
I would rather guys post the truth so that others will know that with weapons of time gone by, hunting isnt quite as easy as placing a scope on a deer an pulling the trigger. This year I admitted to missing --- My shots were deflected due to sapling that in the shadows simply could not be seen. My aim was true and dead on as I checked after each miss. Never have I nor any of the hunters who I personally know here, taken a shot out of their comfort zone. I can hit a 4 by 6 inch gong, at times, at 100 yards with open sites on Elisabeth. Never will I take a flintlock shot over 50 yards. That is my comfort zone for a clean kill. With my bow its under 40 yards at present. I could care less about the anti hunters and their agenda---We need to remember that if we want our guns and the right to hunt we number in the millions and better stay united. Its divided we will surely loose and fall.mossycamo said:i would rather have a clean miss than have a wounded deer and not find it. and for those that miss alot and post on here, well they are just making fun of themselfs, just part of the healing process......lol..... laughter! we all miss and we all express it differently.
