- hit too far forward on another doeat a 10yd steep quartering away angle... lost

- 30yd steep broadside at a nubby... dropped on the spot

Two bucks and two does doubled lunged all within 20 yards and dead in a another 30 yards. They went DOWN quickly.
AND one nice buck at under 20 shot square in the shoulder and never recovered. Hanging head in shame but such is hunting.

Nebraska turkey: 6 yards, flew away with arrow, not recovered, blind
Nebraska turkey: 30 yards, spot and stalk
Nebraska turkey fall: 20 yards, spot and stalk
New Zealand tahr 3 of 4 from 27 out to 50 yards, spot and stalk
New Zealand chamois 2 of 4 from 30 out to 60 yards, spot and stalk
New Zealand red deer: 40 yards, spot and stalk
New Zealand Arapawa sheep: 6 yards, spot and stalk
New Zealand turkey: 20 yards, spot and stalk

Respect!

The sad thing is.....there are people who will take the high and mighty stance that you didn't recover all of your animals. I've been saying that there are 3 types of people. 1) Those who will admit to hitting but not recovering an animal. 2. Those who will NOT admit to it. and 3. Those who haven't had enough shot opportunities.

I want to commend you on one helluva GREAT season. I am in awe.

Thanks Jeff,

There isn't one shot that I regret taking. As someone said, "it's hunting". The turkey which flew away was hit just about as perfectly as one could be hit. We went back with dogs after searching for several hours. The dogs couldn't even find the bird. We weren't sure if a coyote sweep through and found the gobbler before us, or...? One doe in Illinois was eaten by coyotes after we decided to look for her in the morning-again, the shot was spot on. The doe in Nebraska collapsed within sight of me. I really thought she was down for the count. The shot was right through the boiler room. I got up a little early...her head was down and I thought she was dead. When I approached, she got up and ran...never to be seen again (my fault, I pushed to soon). The buck in South Dakota...I do not know what happened there. The buck may have ducked. Had my arrow hit him one inch lower...lights out.I spent two days looking for him.

Here's a photo of the doe I shot in Texas.
