this thread is seriously making me re evaluate wether or not i want to bow hunt any more. last year i acsidently hit a doe with my truck. it badly hurt the doe, but dident kill it and this was the one time i dident have my .44 on me. it would not let me neer it to kill it with my knife. iv never felt so helpless in my life. i had hurt this deer and could not put it out of its missery. i dont ever want to feel like that again.
