I dont understand why some people are so irresponsible to try and hunt when they havent learned how to shoot a bow or a gun for that matter. It is understandable that every hunter in their tenure will make a bad shot. but for me a lot of people go out and pick their bow up for the first time on their way to the truck to go hunting on opening day. i have found and humanly put down several deer over the last year that have been maimed or wounded in a way that cause gangrene to set in or left them suffering. like i said, eventually and inevitably everyone that hunts a lot will have something happen in the course of a hunt that will cause them to miss or not be as accurate as possible. whether that be a small limb that you glance with your arrow or faulty fletching or what have you. however for people to not take the time to shoot their weapon and learn what their true limitations are is unacceptable to me and i have seen way to much of it in my area over the last few years for it to all be from uncontrollable circumstances. if you are going to be a bow hunter or any kind of hunter for that matter, take the time to learn the skill set required and your limitations to be not only a great hunter but a more ethical and humane hunter. i am a big advocate of hunting, im just tired of the people that just shoot and maim deer due to lack of practice or lack of tracking knowledge. best of luck to you all kill a big one.
