Well last Saturday i missed this bruiser at 38 yards. He was in the Feeder pin, the deer around him were spooked by something and i had to let one fly. Looked like a great shot until i heard my arrow hit the top of the fence panel. Talk about being upset!! I knew a that moment i would not get another chance at this buck. Sure enough my good buddy stuck him last night and put him on the ground. Hes about 20" inside, not sure of a score yet but regardless he is one hell of an 8pt, i mean look at those brows!! Congrats to my good buddy for getting him on the ground!

Congrats. Shooting through panels with a bow can be tricky. I pick my row of squares to shoot through (for me it's the larger 4X6 rectangles/ 3rd row from the top on my 34" panels) and I let the animal position themselves within it. It's the perfect opening to shoot through at the distance I want.

It works well for our sized deer, but will vary greatly from ranch to ranch.

I was elevated 6ft in the air. Knew my arrow would drop some at 38 yards. If i would have aimed 1/4in higher my arrow would have made it over the panel and would have been an excellent shot. It just was not meant to be for me. it happens!!
