    You just missed your shot at the big buck. Upset with yourself, you realize how/what went wrong. It's the same thing you do often when your hunting and screw things up.

    Tell us; What was it that cost you another good story to tell all your buddies? How can everyone else learn from your mistake so they don't make the same one themselves.

    Coming out of the stand too early.... Or hunting with a buddy who does and rides a four wheeler right up to your stand while you're drawing back on a monster... I'll never forgive him lol

    Making sure you know where you placed your ladder stand. Sometimes it easy to pass them up, so they should be marked with a piece of red/orange fluorescent tape on the tree. A good flashlight is a must when walking to your stand well before sun-up; otherwise you will stumble around making noise looking for it.

    Rushing the shot, passing on day one what I would kill on the last have been issues I have dealt with. Oh and if you run cameras, don't tell anyone, even if u think they are ur best buddy, where u got the pic of ur target deer.

    Playing the wind and proper preparation. Practice with your weapon of choice.
