    Not always true. My aunt still has the heart of the first dear killed on the farm. A perfect X right through the center of the heart. Bear broadhead with bleeders. The buck cleared a 40 acre corn field before it dropped.

    Another reason the double-lung shot is so effective that some hunters and non-hunters alike don't think of, and that's the fact that both lungs collapse and the animal can't breathe which helps keep them from going far after the shot. These shots also are going to cut blood vessels that will cause a rapid drop in blood pressure that will deprive the brain of oxygenated blood, thus causing it to stop functioning quick too.

    Mainly wild hogs and less deer (different from those in North America, but i'm too lazy now to search the correct English name ). There are also brown bears, wolves and jackals but they can't be killed without a special permission.
