    Great infomation sir! Been there and done just that – thanks for the tip…

    Great column…..I realized a number of years ago while trying to kill a mature doe in Wisconsins EAB program that the doe with her yearlings during the rut is the smartest deer in the woods. Taking that thought with me and trying not to overthnk the shot on a big buck has helped me just focus on the spot behind the shoulder Experienced bowhunters are extremely competative and I sometimes let my mind got way in front of the shot. The word is focus on the task at hand . Your past column on shooting anterless deer had clarified that for me…Thanks again and good hunting
