Although shot placement is always critical in bowhunting I would like to point out to newer bowhunters that the frontal shot isn't always the best. The vital area is rather narrow. A few inches one way or the other can result in hitting bone and thus a wounding shot. A little low and the brisket can result in poor penetration. A little high in the center can result in the arrow passing between the lungs. In this case there are major arteries and the liver possibly being hit, but leaves for very spotty bloodtrail and a long tracking job. The broadside and/or quartering away shot are the better of the three shown.
Bill, good pics and it never hurts to remind people or educate those who don't know.

Great info Barry.
always heard the old man say, broadside, and quarter side is always the 1st choice, and frontal is the last resort or the last choices.....
If you have never heard of it or not seen it try the Shot Simulator.
This bit of software can take a shot at a whitetailed deer at any angle from any elevation, (just about), and show you what vitals or bone your arrow will be hitting or passing through.
You can download it to your computer or smartphone. One of the neat things is you can play with it in the tree to pass time on your smartphone after your shot to keep you from taking up a trail too soon.
You can find it at Deer&Deer hunting
