I'm going to stay as positive as I can here. I really think you are being irresponsible if you hunt and shoot the way that you describe. I'm not going to quote, but earlier you said that you missed 4 shots, and your dad missed one. Then you said that these are once in a lifetime chances? Your story isn't working out, at least in my mind. And, if you are curious, my hunting conditions are similar to yours; state land, not a lot of time to scout, no baiting (which was true for everyone this year), hunting pressure is always a variable, etc., etc., etc. This year loggers were pulling equipment out of the block we hunt on the afternoon of the 14th, so things were totally different for us.

I've probably offended you, so here's my peace offering: if you would like, I'll offer my paper deer silhouette targets and a guest session at my club in Fenton. PM me if you are interested, and we'll set up a time.

Ok thanks for staying positive. I was just using "once in a lifetime" to explain the excitment and "buck fever" I get when seeing a deer. Those shots weren't once in a lifetime, but I got so wound up I couldn't consintrate correctly. Like I said we rarely see bucks, so if I don't have a doe permit I don't get real excited about going out, chances are I won't get a deer. Before this year I haden't shot at a deer in about three years. So when I got a doe permit this year I was super pumped. Then I was hunting with a gun I have never shot at a deer before with. The two didn't mix well, I was freaking out everytime I saw a deer and was shooting with an unfamiliar gun. I think maybe more of my problem rather than target shooting is controlling my nerves. Im not sure about other people, but I have horrible buck fever. My heart pumps so hard I can hear it, my face gets red hot and I start to breath really hard. Plus I start to shake like a leaf. One year I was shaking so bad my chair was sqeeking and it scared the deer off.

Maybe I shouldn't have worded how I hunt the way I did. Its not like I miss deer all the time, actually before this year I had only missed one. I have shot two deer with a rifle, and missed a four point with a rifle. I guess what I was trying to say is if somone in my hunting party misses a deer, we don't judge them for it. It happens to all of us and were just out there to have a good time. So we say "at least you got a shot at one", to make them feel better. Really we don't like to miss, its not like we just go out in the woods and blaze at deer that walk by. Last year my cousin missed a rack and actually started crying about it. (she is a girl but still). Its a big deal for one of us to get a deer, so we really try hard to make a clean shot.

I only made that comment to TFin04 to get him riled up. Not that I was sure that he is the type of hunter I described, I just didn't like his comment to me so I threw one back that I knew he wouldn't like.

And you didn't offend me, I completely understand peoples concern with the way somone should hunt deer. I just get sick of the guys that think the only way to hunt is with $1,000 in equipment. Thanks for the offer on the target shooting, I will think about it.
