At 10:20 AM on an unusually warm November morning in 2008 I was enjoying the excitement of watching an impressive 7-point buck approaching my stand as he responded to my doe-in-heat call. I came to full draw, aimed carefully, and then let the arrow fly. My immediate assessment was that I hadn’t been successful, and a quick descent of my tree and an even faster walk to the spot where that buck had stood only minutes before proved that no tracking was necessary this time. The arrow had missed its mark. I retrieved it and headed back to my tree to resume the day’s hunt.
