I tried it for a year or two and gave up. Missed a real nice buck (shot over his back) and lost a doe who turned at the sound of the string being released (my arrow hit her butt). I HATE wounding game that I don't recover and that ebded my bow hunting. I just decided that it wasn't for me.
Maybe I'll try it again someday but not any time soon. Conside rit all the more bow hunting opportunity for you guys. When I gave up bow hunting I started chasing waterfowl instead and man do I ever enjoy that more. There is just something more satisfying about watching birds rain down in front of your shotgun than in watching a deer run away from my clumbsy attempts with a pointy stick and string.
Good luck out there! If you stick with it, you will get one sooner or later whether it is this year or next!
