If your goin to hunt I think its something that happens to everyone eventually.
Mine was a similar situation...First bow kill when I was about 14. but I clipped him in the briskit, right in front of his shoulders...Terrible shot.
We tracked him for hours and hours, found him 2 days later thanks to the buzzards. Meat ruined, so we did the right thing, sawed the antlers off, and left him for the yotes and panthers.
Felt bad about my shot, but atleast we finally found the deer. Have done everything I can to make solid shots every since...And have. I never get lax... 50 yards to 500 yards. I take the same amount of time to make sure I hit where I'm aiming.
