What's your most embarrassing and unbelievable misses? Bow, muzzy or rifle.
I missed a 5x5 elk at <10 yards. I didn't hit a limb, no bomb hit close to me and my bow didn't malfunction. I just neatly put an arrow between his antlers...right where I was looking.
I also emptied my quiver, (EMPTIED!), at a wide-open 6x6 bull at 20 yards. He just politely circled me in the sagebrush while I sank deeper and deeper into buck fever. All shots were about 20 yards.
A long time ago I was rifle hunting mule deer in Utah with my in-laws. A buck comes out of the quakies and right up to my father-in-law and stood 30 yards away. He freaked! He had a lever action at that time. He pulled up and we saw the recoil of his gun but never heard a shot. He was going through the motions but never pulling the trigger. He repeated this until his magazine was empty. He couldn't understand how he had missed a buck that close! When we got done laughing/crying we showed him the pile of live ammo at his feet. He made us swear not to tell anyone back at camp.
I have more....but.
