You absolutely did the right thing. At an oblique frontal angle a 2″ lateral error can land you arrow a foot or more farther back on the body. I passed up a straight on shot at one of the biggest bucks I’ve ever had within bow range last year and to be honest, it wasn’t even a matter of a noble ethical stance–I didn’t want to take the risk because wounding and losing a deer is the absolute lowest depth of misery I’ve ever experienced in hunting.
