    Thanks for these, Jerome. My daughter's first real deer hunt is coming up. It'll be useful for her.

    NO, NO, NO, a thousand times NO. Put that bullet up four inches and back four inches from the leg-belly intersection. Double lunger, they can't breathe, they can't run and they die quick. Aim for the shoulder, they twitch and you've got a runner. Seen it more times than I want to remember, mostly by once a year at the range paper plate shooters. Shaky off hand too. Arrows and bolts will bounce off or stick in that shoulder and then you have another runner.

    At angle shots, aim a little aft of the opposite front leg.

    The “elbow” is a good reference point for the location of the heart, I’ve used it to kill a lot of deer and also in taking direct cardiac puncture blood samples.
