    I voted for recovery. I can enjoy mother nature and the experience of the hunt for 12 hours a day in a stand and realize how lucky I am to be able to do so, but hitting an animal and not finding it can taint things very quickly and put a damper on even the greatest of memories :thumbup

    I voted for right after the shot. That thawack sound is awesome! It was close because it is such a rush when an animal is coming in also.

    I could not vote, too late as usual.
    But for me it has to be before the shot, and in some cases, weeks before, with the spotting, the trail camera picks, then of course the big crescendo, that few moments before the shot. Is he going to turn and give me a good broad side or quarter away, when should I draw, (don’t turn and look now), is there a branch or twig, are you sure this is the one you want? (thats the one that always gets me in trouble) because after I let him go it’s just me and my Lab at the campfire and she has to listen to me tell it over and over. She does not seem to mind though if I scratch her behind the ear and find a loose dog bisket now and then.
    I have a promise I made to her,, if I freshen my drink, she gets a bisket and then sits and listens. I don’t know but it works for me. :thumbup
