I guess that is one of the reasons why I have not taken up archery. Having said that, chances are that a rifle hunter would not have experienced such a shattering experience. My other problems is that having such a beautiful animal so close to me I might not have had the heart to shoot it. During bucks only days I have seen this and my wife has as well with does being very close. The other thing is that if you could guarantee this experience again to some one else what could you get for it (how much money). After such an experience many would be happy to quit.
