Default Dumbest thing you ever did hunting?

Mine was the first time I ever bowhunted. I grunted in a nice 8 point. I was on the ground and he was coming at me. I was afraid of him so i started to move so he wouldnt come any closer! I was 13 how pathetic is that.

I was climbing into a homemade stand at 8:00am. (Moved from my climber because a house dog was at my tree barking up a storm for 2hrs straight.)

Dropped my bow. Went down, got it, back up. Dropped my quiver.
Down, back up.
Grunted and a 7 pointer popped up right beside me. Shot him.
He just stood there.
Thought I missed and when trying to re-nock he busted me.
Ran 15yds and fell over dead as a hammer.

Climbed down, left bow in stand. Back up and back down.

Looked behind me and saw a monster 10 pointer about 20yds away (in NC you can take 2 per day so I could have took him as well.)
Turned to draw, he took off.

To numerous to mention, probably dropping my bow out of the tree and breaking my sight off, then running back to pickup wiring the site back on and back to the tree. Luckily did not see anything to shoot at.
