I agree,better to kick youself for not shooting than to kick yourself for wounding an animal.When in doubt let em walk!

I definitely think you made the right choice. If you hesitate at all when thinking about making a shot, don't do it. There no feeling worse than injuring an animal and never finding it, or making it suffer a slow death. Out of respect for the animal you make the right choice...he'll be bigger next year!

Its better to not take the shot and see the Buck later and have a better shot than to take an Iffy shot and wound the Buck only to loose it and have Coyotes enjoy it before you find it!

When you have to ask this question on an internet forum......I think you just answered your own question.
