Re: Head shot anyone???

Been doing brain stem shots since age of 12 Dad would take noting else as he hated to see blood shot meat an would not stand for any wasted meat.Made a distinquished master out of me.At age 71[going on25] my last head shot was 850 yd with 338 laupa on a spike elk.Still workin as a predator hunter an trapper.

    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.

    I've shot a fair amount of does in the head. Why waste meat? I'm sure if a cow elk presented herelf I would do same.
