I don't really like responding to posts like this but misses do happen sometimes, it just gets a little under my skin when I hear things like 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc shots and still missing.

If a shooter misses once that should end the shooting, there shouldn't ever be repeated shots unless it's at the range in a safe shooting environment or until the shooter knows why the first shot was a miss and corrects it.

and now, on this specific post, I have to ask, How can you miss a deer at 40 yards with a rifle and think it's safe to continue shooting more?
In the future I hope you handle a missed shot in a safer manner.

Like Spiker said, you want advice but when its not what you want to hear you come up with your own answer.
