    It happens, 40 yards is no gimme. Did you bend at the waist? I did this once this season and missed low.

    Do you practice broadheads at 40? I sighted in at 40 in beginning of Sept then again two weeks ago. For some reason mine were a little low as well, perhaps the wind was at my back in Sept. Was it those fobs? lol
