Default RE: What's the biggest animal you ever missed?

Some years ago I had a 160 plus buck come down a trail and stop slightly quartering away from only 20 yards. Not sure if it was the wind or a 6th sense but that huge buck turned his head and looked right at me. Admittedly I was not in good cover. But for the life of me I could not pick a spot and was fixated on his beautiful rack. I missed clean low and he turned around trotting slowly away then walking off in the thick brush. All I could do was watch the tall, wide, massive rack walk regally away as if the king of the woods won the battle, of course in which he did. I immediately became sick to my stomach and he haunts me still to this day.
