    Well I'm at my buddy's family farm in an elevated blind. Nothing so far, but I think the thermals are just starting to rise which makes this spot really good. Suuuuure would like to kill one.

    At least you had the chance to release the arrow. I have had 8 deer in range, drawn twice, and had to let down both times because the deer moved off without coming into a shooting lane.

    I'll be doing an evening hunt today, and perhaps an all day sit tomorrow. Dependent on what my cams show today. That small 6pt on the tail of a doe yesterday was probably the latest in the season that I've seen chasing. I just hope it continues!

    So I actually think I figured out part of the issue. When I had my new site put on when mine broke I also had my bow restrung. It was needed but I was gonna wait for the off season. When I shot it yesterday at the target I was a bit low, and when I went to adjust the site it was almost maxed out height-wise already. I thought that was weird but didn't have a lot of time. It took me a bit longer to aquire site picture as well. But I could put them into the center ring. Looking at it this morning, no way I should have my site maxed out like that, can't even see the level bubble when I aim. Pretty sure the bow tech put my peep too low. That would explain my low shot because my normal anchor point is not centered in the ring.

    Doing something I haven't done since 2007, working on a weekend in November.

    Shotgun weekend and no permit so couldn't hunt anyway.

    Won't happen next year though!

    It does sound like the peep wasn't properly placed. I hope you get it completely worked out. There's nothing like missing twice to have you questioning everything.
