I missed a Giraffe on my first safari in Africa broadside at 20 yards. Ridiculous.....OH, and get this....the following summer I missed a camel in the Outback.[:@]...I will be back for revenge, you can bet the paycheck on that one.

Besides those escapades, a turkey with the bow. 150 ish buck with my muzzleloader. Not sure I've ever missed with the .270, what little I have hunted with it.

I missed a spike bull elk off a limb deflection.

As far as whitetails go, I missed a couple back in the day that were HUGE to me at the time, but were probably only 110-115" bucks, tops. I'm hoping that I can keep those as my biggest misses.

A six pointer two years ago, only shot I ever had on a buck, probably only 60-70 inches...

Do you want them all or just the biggest! The biggest was a really wide 8 pt at about 25 yds. I still don't know what happened that day!

Feral reindeer at 30 yards. Helps if you use the 30 and not the 40 yard pin!

That's me in the center of the scope on the far side of the herd just before I missed. Good thing they didn't have video of it!

At 19 years old, how do you afford an African safari and a hunt in the Outback? Just curious.
