Default 5 shots......no deer

First off I'll be up front with you. This is only my second year bow hunting. I didn't get a deer last year. I practiced my butt off this summer. I've practiced so I can hit at 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 yards accurately. I want to get a deer so bad. Hubby and I sat in the blind this morning and a doe was at 20 yards. She was broadside standing still as a statue. I pull baxk, set the pin on her, and let the arrow fly. Clean miss. She's still there. She's not going anywhere. Pull back, aim, arrow flies and again. Clean miss. She's still there and I repeat this process another three times and you guessed it. Miss, miss, miss. No more arrows. Done. She's still there. I'm setting there about to have a fit. Finally we get out after she's gone. Go home and I head straight for the backyard. At this point I'm thinking I must have bumped the site or something. I shoot. Dead on. After a couple shots I'm starting to get cold. I put my thick warm face mask on. Shoot. Can't hit a thing. I guess I'm gonna have to invest in a beannie hat and a good thick scarf. Stupid hat. No deer.
