So in other words, if you have experience,great tuned equiptment, and you don't get buck fever nothing possible can happen to prevent you from hitting the mark??brock ratcliff said:I dont think anyone is wanting to infringe on the freedom of speech, however some things are not benefitted by speaking.
I think inexperienced hunters run their mouth when they stick a deer for two reasons:
1. They actually dont know where they made the mistake that resulted in the loss of the deer and wish to discuss the matter with others who know more.
2. They are so darn happy to have actually gotten a shot and made contact with a deer the fact they took or made a BAD shot becomes secondary.
The reason I say " inexperienced hunters " is I dont believe anyone who has taken game ethically with the bow would shame themselves by making a mistake which would result in the loss of the game. There is only one right way to take game with a bow. There is no room for error. The quicker hunters learn this simple lesson the sooner we wont need to read these ridiculous "lost another one" threads.
Shoot at only calm animals, at a good angle, with well tuned equipment and this nonsense will stop. Even in the excitement of the hunt, it is a simple thing to remember, just do it right! Dont do anything you will need to be ashamed of!
I agree with you 100% me to. If it no longer is exciting why do it??brock ratcliff said:Tree Jumper....."buck fever" is a part of hunting. It is why I hunt, I like the feeling, Ive learned to deal with it. If a person is going to use "buck fever" for an excuse for a bad hit, maybe that person should have realized ,BEFORE the shot, they were no longer in control of the situation. Arrows dont just fly without command. Get a grip on the situation or sit down and watch the animal walk. NO EXCUSES.
