If the field goal is blocked, and you recover, you can re-kick another field goal. If you miss the field goal it is a turnover. So, it is best to kick your field goal on 4th down

On fourth down, unless you are close enough for a field goal try. You can choose to "go for it" on fourth down, but if you don't make a first down then you lose the ball at the spot where you were. Punting allows you to give the ball to the other team as far as you can kick it down field.
