If wounding deer doesn't bother you....go ahead and fling arrows. If wounding deer bothers you...then follow these simple rules.

1) Never shoot at a deer that is quartering to you. Wait Wait Wait for a better shot. Be patient wait for that broadside or quartering away shot.

2) Keep your shots within 20 yards. (Yes I can shoot nice tight groups at long range, but the chance of wounding goes way way up past 30 yards...IMHO)

3) Keep your broadhead razor sharp.

4) Spend less time shooting the bow at long range and more time learning the art of ambushing the animal you're hunting at close range. For me I'm super confident at 13 to 17 yards. When I set a stand it's usually for a 15 yard shot.

If a pie plate comes walking in at 60 yards I might take a poke at it....not a deer.
