    The system cut me off before I I could finish the story:

    So after that miss, I checked all my gear to make sure that wasn't the problem. It wasn't. It was me. So I went back to the same area a few nights later. Another doe came in. I drew back, aimed at the vitals and released. Missed again! I was devastated! In all the years I have hunted, I have never missed at that range. Obviously I have a mental issue going on with some target panic. I will be working hard to fix it before next season.

    Fortunately, the misses were clean. I would much rather miss an animal completely than just make a poor shot and injure the animal.

    I want to give a "shout out" to GoWild for the great discounts and free shipping I recieved for several items that were key to my hunt this season. I purchased a Phantom saddle system and Skeletors from Tethrd and Vortex binoculars. Great products! At 52, I am able to get up and down from the tree with no issues at all! I wish these projects were available 30 years ago!

    @Zach it was actually a great year, just a rough ending. Need to practice more shooting out of a saddle and with late season gear. I haven’t hunted late season for about 10 years due to kids hockey schedules. Thanks for the well wishes and good luck to you!
