ok so i recently went squirrel hunting with a traditional recurve bow it has 40 lb draw weight so i just started bow hunting or even shoot a recurve bow at all but i do have a good grouping ok so i shot this 1 squirrel i got a gut shot but the squirrel didn't die instantly i want to know if its a good shot for a beginner it was from about 10 yards i know i'm supposed to shoot in the head with a blunt tip and the heart with the point tips but i wanna know if i should stop completely and re train because of that one miss kill i have seen more than one gut shot but they did not stop bow hunting

you did well. Hitting that small a target even with sights is good. You shooting instinctive is great.
