Regardless of the specifics, as long as we are putting forward our best effort, making a mistake is very valuable as long as we learn from it.

I had a similar result as you with a 60 yards shot on a bull a few years ago... And I felt horrible for a few weeks. Until I realized that if I could not accept a lost animal, then I should not be hunting... It's just an unfortunate reality that will happen to all of us if we hunt long enough.
Well stated and thank you for the comment......Rich
