shooting from a stand is a lot different from sitting at a bench off season.you missed most likelydid you find any holes from the bullet?no blood at all?did ya ever shoot the gun after that?and see if it was sighted in properly?i once put the cross hairs on a deer pulled the trigger wound up hitting it in the foot.turns out the scope got bumped and wasnt sitting right.I tracked the deer till it went onto private property.the owner wouldnt give me permission to tack it and warned me about tresspassing so i couldnt finish the job.needless tosay i was upset..check the gun again and the scope
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
