Default Whats everyones' batting average?

I just wanted to see how my pathetic .500 avg. stacked up against some of the heavy hitters on here. I will be the first to say that in this "business" ,.500 ,(for my own standards) is not acceptable. All my misses were pilot error, and am just thankful I did not wound anything. I will attribute some of it to first year shooting with 3 pins instead of 1, but unacceptable non the less. Here goes:
1. Shot a button buck at 20 yds. steep down hill quartering away. Harvested.
2. Shot a doe at 15yds. Harvested.
3. Shot at a doe at 20yds. broadside but heavy angle around tree. All bunched up on shot, string hit arm, missed wide. Should not have shot.
4.Shot at 130+ buck. Mis-ranged his lane at 40, shot over him. Actual distance was 35yds.
5. Shot a doe at 25yds. quartering away, double lung, harvested.
6. Shot a doe broadside 22yds. harvested.
The last 2 were in the last 2 days,
7. After holding at full draw for 3-4 minutes, I finally shot at a doe at 20yds broadside. Jerked trigger and shot over.
8. Shot at a doe at 30yds. actual distance was 25. Shot over. She was semi alert. If I had shot for the actual distance though, she would have been down.

There it is. My season in a nut shell. 4 opportunities missed due to issues in my control.
Anyone care to share their shot history? Criticism? Season re-cap?

Okay then....

2 for 4 on turkeys in KS, killed first one at 31 yards, nicked one at 41 yards, missed a head shot at 16 yards then killed the same bird at 19 yards. (ALL caught on film for River Valley Game Calls Head Hunters vol IV): http://www.huntingnet.com/fieldjournal/fieldjournal_detail.aspx?nID=645

and 2 for 2 on whitetails, doe and buck. The doe at 41 yards, the buck at 26 yards.

That would be 4 for 6 or .667 % .

I'm 4 of 6 for arrows released. 4 kills, one miss (damn branches), and a doe shot that we trailed for over a mile and lost the trail.
