Default What's your best excuse for missing

I have used my fair share of excuses of why I missed a deer. My best excuse is when I missed a doe at 100 yards with a buddy of mine watching. I was using his gun and I told him the sights were off. Not a half hour later, he shot asmallraccoonout of a tree at 200 yards. That was about 10 years ago and I still haven't been able to live that one down. What's your best excuse? I think I need some new ones.

Same here. However in truth, mis judging range is probably the biggest reason that I miss. I don't do it often because I will pass on EVERY iffy shot. I can wait for a better chance.

Don't need an excuse..I never miss!..j/k

I just tell what happened. No excuses necessary.

In most cases the guys I hunt with have heard it all before anyway.
