Not much to tell except the usual, I can't aim. On the second day of the deer bow season here in Missouri, and the weather was perfect for an early season Doe hunt. I slithered my way to one of my favorite doe spots before first light to the sound of “blowing and stomping” in every direction. So, things started out just like every year, "Why Me". Within 30 minutes I had deer movement in my area again and it wasn't long before a nice 100+ pound doe with a reddish summer coat still on, was 15 yards from my stand…”broadside.” Yep, I missed her! Why me? One thing you learn as a hard knock hunter is stick with it. Most guys would have gone home, but not me. Another 30 minutes and along came another smaller doe about 20 yards broadside, nice. Yep, I missed her too! After a few tears and a close inspection of my bow, I found that my Keller sight was locked in the wrong notch, causing me to shoot way to high. So it was the equipments fault!” I just wanted that to be clear.
