My dad and I shoot a lot year round. That's what we do to have some time together. We practice shooting in all positions and when I took my deer thanksgiving I was freehand. And I know luck had played into it but I also did my research on my scope and ammo and practice a lot at many different ranges
well thatis a very nice shot freehand I have taken flack for the distance I have taken deer with my bow longest shot 53 yards but I shoot pretty much all year long & out to 70 yards so I know what I & my equipment are capable of
don't take this the wrong way just asking why do you say Luck played a part?
