WHAT, WESTERN NEW YORK, I'LL GO GET HIM! Nah just kidding, hey man don't feel bad it's all a human quality "we all make mistakes". I have yet to meet "the perfect hunter". It's happened to me before and him, him, him, him, him, and her too. You never know that same deer could've killed himself that same night chasing does right into the front end of a truck. At least you tried your darndest to track him down. Probably made a good snack for coyotes or mountain lion, but that's nature for you. Head up, remember the experience and see if there is something to learn from it, cuz if it dint kill ya itll only make ya stronger.
