Watched a doe eat for a good 30 minutes,She never looked around or acted odd but I kno this time of year she shouldn't be alone!
Then finally she looks over my left shoulder! And BAMM he walks in from my left, nose in the air barreling forward! I never had time to grunt or nothing .she was now staring at him wich means I'm right over his back ! She finally puts her head down! I draw put the lowest pin I have wich is 10! On his heart and wifffff right over his back!
I NEED THERAPY!!!!!!!

When shooting up extremely close you need to use your 30 or 40 yard pin. I know it seems strange but under 5 yards is different and you really need to practice that to make sure its right for your set up. Sorry it happened. Maybe you'll get another shot at him.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

You also have a tendency to shoot high if you were elevated in a stand.

No sir first time I've ever hunted out of a ground blind ! Needless to say the north wind and scent less gear I had on I had a few deer with in 15 yards! Nothing like ground level gonna be hard to climb back in a stand ! I did grunt him back in within 25 yards just never offered a shot! So waited till dark and backed out! I found a good trail! And found the thickest tree/brush and cut from the inside and just made myself a big hole! Left and right trail views!

If the 10 yd pin shot high, how is shooting even higher going to help? Sounds to me like he just muffed the shot. We've all done it.

Maybe, but go shoot at your target at 5 yards or less and see where you hit.

Well the moral of the story is my shooting lane is clear as I look out! But when I look from the outside in there are vines! So when I look thru my peep sight I see clear shot BUT my arrow is what a good 4 inches lower! I'm just thinking my arrow caught some vegetation! I came home sat in a similar chair and shot with my 10 from 7 /10 yards and I was dead on!!!!!!!

Did you hit a limb. Sometimes in the excitement don't notice those suckers.
