  • Man did I ever choke!!!!!!!!

    About a week ago, I missed a huge 6 point at only 20+ yards. Here is what happened. I heard him splash in the creek. I hit the grunt call and the can. Here he came right behind me. I stayed calm and settle my 20 yard pin behind his sholder. I shot, then I heard a loud DING. My bottom cam hit my stand, I shot very short of the buck. He ran about 20 yards and stopped, but no shot, then he walked on. Just my luck!!!!! I had to replace my cables, and do some work on my cam.

      All part of the game! Keeps it interesting and allows you to go after him again.

        Man that is tough luck. Luckily your bow only needed minor repair is what it sounds like. I saw a new Guardian blow up after the bottom cam hit the stand on a shot.

          I had the same thing happen to me, but my cam hit my backpack on the limb beside me. It didn't hurt anything but my pride and the arrow smacked the buck on the back sideways. The broadhead never even touched him. I know how it feels.

                    I've been there too.
                    I was at full draw sitting flat on my rear end tracking a nice buck, when he stopped I took the shot and the cam on my Pro 40 hit my lower leg and the arrow went low and left by about 5 yards.

                        DOH! That bites when you get into the right spot, beat him at his own game, and at the last second, something goes wrong.
                        Bowhunting is a game of inches though, and attention to the details. Oh well... it let's you get back out there, get after him again, and stay in the game.
                        AND... I'll bet you don't make that mistake again. Every day we spend in the woods is a learning exerience. And we learn from the little snafu's we make along the way. They make us more exerienced, and better all-around hunters. And we've all had our little snafu's.. Trust me.

                        He won that round, now get back out and even the score. Good luck!
