I chose other. Putting your arrow through the kill zone is the most important thing in bowhunting.

Location, location, location,.....if you're not at the same location at the same time as the deer you want to shoot, nothing else matters...you can be the best shot with the best form with the fastest bow with the straightest arrow that has the sharpest broadhead on it and know where to put the arrow, but if you're not at the same spot at the same time as the deer, it don't matter...

In order.........

1) A place to hunt.

2) Time - You must have enough time to become proficient.

3) Patience

4) Confidence

5) Knowing your game animal.

6) Being proficient with your weapon.

I selected "other" because I agree that practice is the most important part. Maybe you were looking for the most important component of the equipment?

My third would be patience. It think that is the most important aspect.

Judging range or distance.

So often deer/game is hit high, low, or missed entirely because of our inability to range properly. This is all part of practice, of course. I'm just being a little more specific of which part of practice I feel is most important. All the high dollar range finders in the world can't be relied on. You must practice being able to hit your target at an unknown range and incline. Almost instinctive I'd say.
