Shot Placement and Distance
Hey Guys. I am wondering what shot placement on whitetail deer you would take at certain distances. Now I dont shoot over 500 yards yet so I dont really need info for that at the moment but under 500 yards using a 3006 with a 165 grainer, at which distances would you take harder quartering shots, broadside shoulder shots, broadside double lung shots, straight on (deer facing you) chest shot, neck shots etc? Obviously short range shots like 100 yards...id guess almost any shot would be fine except shooting up the deer's rear end haha but at what distances would you start only shooting say a broadside shot right behind the shoulder double lung (maybe heart)?
I aks because to date, my farthest shot on a deer has only been ~160 yards lol but target shooting I go a LOT further. The hunting trip I am going on this weekend may have shots up to 500 yards...I honestly (probably) wont shoot past 300 but who knows.
