I had a bad shot from a seated position in the tree stand and the deer was alert. I thought I had the shot lined up well. I’m not sure if it dropped and lunged or it was a bad shot all together, I’ll take being lucky here for sure. I have noticed I either miss the deer completely or I get good shot on them, I can flat out shoot some foam from 0-40 yards, when hunting my mental process seams to float away with the wind. Every time I have a deer walk in I now tell myself “don’t rush you have time, get the shot lined up and get off the string clean.
I have never spine shot a deer prior to this one.
I hear ya.. I’m not criticizing..I tell everybody that bow hunts.. draw on every animal that comes within range.. squirrels, turkey, deer, anything.. and see if you can get to anchor without alarming animal.. I’m not saying shoot everything.. but that will let you know how careful you must be with your setup, shot selection and movement..
