Well, in my humble opinion, there is a difference between
a bad shot and
a bad shot. Taking a bad shot implies a shot that likely should not have been attempted in the first place. Making a bad shot can happen for a variety of reasons, some of which most, if not all, of us will experience sometime in our bow hunting careers. A slight torque of the bow, a quick peek at the target when releasing the arrow, a nearly microscopic twig undetected in the sight picture can all cause us to make a bad shot. Or perhaps a deer taking a little step forward as the arrow is released. That, coupled with what you found out about your rest, meant a bad shot was made, not taken. Congrats though on recovering what is by all means a terrific deer!
Glad you found out what happened with your bow too. That is probably the cautionary tale here - we all need to regularly and thoroughly inspect our equipment.
