Re: Best shot placement

A lot depends on the weapon. With a rifle that high shoulder will be OK most times, having said that there is a few inches above the lungs and below the spine that is a "No Man's Land" in other words there is nothing vital there, This is especially true with an arrow or bolt!!
The lungs is a very forgiving shot that will kill any animal and it's a huge target area. Yes it is true that they will run a short distance 100-200 yards, but at the end of the trail there is a dead deer there!!
