    I feel your pain brother, but at least you saw them and had the opportunity. the wind was a big factor for me last year. this year I will use a fixed broad head for close & 30 yards and above I will use a grim reaper thinner arrow and at least 9 GPI. .. but your time is due, your getting better at it . even still I get buck fever & Adrenalin rush. and congrats to the team. that venison will be tasty...:)

    Archery hunting is hard. Can't really add more than that, it is just hard. Keep after them you will get one.

    I've missed stuff from 40 yards with a rifle. Don't beat yourself up. But bummer on your miss.

    Lol! I missed two Javelina one day. On one I guessed the yardage incorrectly, then a minute later I ranged another pig and used the wrong pin.
    Didn't help that my arm was shaking as if it were a bull elk. Ha!

    At least you are putting yourself in opportunities to score. That is most of the battle. The rest will come.

    Looks tasty. Just curious, is your son posing with your bow, or is he hunting? My 11 year old can hunt next year, and has asked about getting a bow. Wondering what to start him with, that doesn't cost a grand...... ;)
