I need to pull up someone's couch, lie down, and get some comforting words. Today was my first chance to get away and gun hunt this week. Now, I am definately a rookie, just my second year doing this and loving it! Really addicted to bow hunting. Anyhow, I got my first deer this year in KY with a rifle. But I really want my first Ohio deer. Today I go hunting public land in the late afternoon/evening. Literally five minutes after entering the woods here comes a pretty nice looking doe. She's walking right towards me, like I am not even there! At about 30 yards or so she stops and kinda turns mostly broadside of me. Bang! I MISS! I was nervous, I may have hit a branch. I wonder, is my gun sighted as good as I thought it was? How do I miss at 30 yards?! Did I hit it and she ran off to die? I couldn't find her and there was no blood whatsoever. The rest of my evening all I thought about was missing. All these awesome deer posted on here.....and I missed! Tell me some of you guys have had UNSUCCESSFUL hunts too??
