If you hunt long enough, it will happen to you, but don't let it be a shot that you knew was not a good idea. Being able to pass on a shot that is iffy will make you a better hunter and conservationist. I'll take the memory of every deer that I was unable to recover to my grave. Try to keep that list short.

Well said, and well done Ohio.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Thanks guys. You are right, I wouldn't be able to stomach it if I made a bad shot when I knew I was taking a chance. I still enjoyed the hunt, seeing the deer, and being outside. One day it will happen. :-)
And then the moon, like to a silver bow new bent in Heaven
