    Found this, thought it might be interesting. They have gone to the extent of freezing animals then scanning and cutting in half to show the actual size and placement of the vital organs. Very informative.

    You might also consider these videos from Bow Hunting Africa_IMPACT. I found them on YouTube.

    Very good info. Nice to see vitals and crosshairs on the animal. I'm going to set up targets and a cow bell to try it with my air rifle just as he did. Looks like a great and cheap idea for practice.

    Thanks Stug for the info!

    I also really like Your home country. I'm ready to go visit again.

    I watched it again. I highly recommend this video. It really put into my mind that I definitely tend to shoot higher than ideal. It gives me confidence to shoot lower than I was comfortable with. Also that wildebeest image is an eye opener.

    Stug, thanks for posting it.

    This is an excellent video, viewing it should be part of the preparation of every hunter going afield.

    I only intended to skim thru the video, but he got me...I watched almost the entire thing, save for some of the dramatic "stalking up, listen to the tune" bits.
    quite interesting.
