My heart starts pumping as soon as a I see a deer and realize that it is coming my way. I control my breath and get calm and stable before I make my shot. After the shot I get a little shaky and feel that adrenaline dump just like after a fight/self defense situation

I got like that in my earlier years of hunting but the more deer I passed, the more it went away. If you don't immediately think you are going to shoot every time you see a deer, you will not get so worked up, and getting worked up before the shot leads to the shakes afterwards. I now mentally prepare to just watch deer, or draw and hold on them without shooting every time I see one. Draw and hold on them, and then let down without shooting several times. It will increase your confidence, reduce target panic, and help you to make a better shot when you do decide to let an arrow go.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation UNDER GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

I've been deer hunting for 26 years (I'm 36) so I'm plenty confident and it isn't target panic. It's just excitement. I love seeing deer, plain and simple. Heck, I see 15+ deer on my property every day and I still love seeing them. They walk through my yard every morning and night and it makes me smile. It's just how I am. I hope I never lose that feeling
