Try this excercise, if you have the time and equipment. Set up a 3-D deer in your backyard or bow range. When you get up in the am walk out back and shoot one arrow at the target, just one and try it for a few weeks. Try as hard as possible to make a perfect shot. Start at 15yrd then 20 etc... until you get to a distance that you don't feel comfortable that you're gonna or can't hit the vitals.
The Idea behind this is, shooting that one arrow with no warm up, if you can hit the vitals each time from what ever distance is comfortable. You will build your confidence of making a kill shot the first and only time you get the opportunity just like hunting.
You can also postion the 3-D target at different angles so you know where to hold to hit vitals. Shooting at a target is fine, but the 3-D target will give real feed back as to if your shot would have killed the deer.
This is a Randy Ulmer tip, but it makes sense and it works well for me.
PS: my max distance is 30yrds

Just last weekend I shot a doe out to 70 yards, and I was 100% confident with that shot,
Did you kill the doe cleanly?
