Need some help guys... So I take all my shots from a seated position, about 12-15' high. Shots range from 20-25 yards. All of my arrows keep sailing high. Like right over they back. On opening day I took my first shot at a doe and zip right over her back. Next doe a lil later I compensated for it by aiming like a FOOT below her with my 20yard pin even though she was at 23 yards. Perfect placement, didn't even make it 30 yards. This morning, nice 6 pointer and compensated for it again like I did the last time, and the arrow sailed again a lil high, struck the buck at top of back, dead center to where I was aiming. Was clean pass through. Arrow soaked in blood, pretty good blood trail for 100yards... Then it just disappears... Have looked at looked for hours... Very angry at myself for not recovering... I am trying to stay positive that the arrow went through all meat, and he may survive. I hate to think I wounded an animal I can not harvest... My question is why is my 20 yard pin when shooting targets perfect, but when elevated its high?
