    Tightly wound survival instincts and lightening fast reflexes.

      you can see an arrow in flight,but the speed of sound from the release is much quicker giving the animal a split second to react

        I know the frustration! I lost a doe because of that this year!

          I think one of the main things is to try not to shoot at them when they are alert. I read an article once that stated an alert deer can dodge an arrow at a distance greater than 20 yards. So if you're going to shoot at an alert deer I would probably keep that distance to less than 15 yards just to be safe.

            your best bet is to turn up the amount of pounds you are pulling back turn it up until it is comfortable but dont have to try really hard to pull it back.

                    An alert deer will duck and turn enough for a miss or poor shot even at 30 yards. It reacts to the sound of the bow. If the deer is not alert you have a much better shot.
