I have never shot at a deer with a rifle but with a bow I always try for a double lungs. Any infos is much appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
I've seen too many deer and antelope horribly wounded to feel like headshots are a good idea on them.
On predators when night hunting often it's the only shot because the eyes are all you can see.
On hogs, if I have the light weight guns instead of the big guns I frequently shoot for headshots; preferably for the ear hole.
