    Very good info here. I'm a low Armpit shooter when it comes to Mule deer. It hasn't failed me yet. I might have to change up for Bear though and aim higher.

    Me also. Neurocardiogenic Syncope. Drinking lots of water and eating lots of salt keeps it in check.

    I've seen pictures and videos on youtube where hunters aimed for the head and didnt kill the animal. One in particular was a photo of a doe with her jaw barely hanging on her head. Very inhumane if you miss. Easier to make sure you got the shot in the boiler room, then they'll bleed out and die.

    This is why ES and I made this post, wanting to show how much larger the lung shot is, they don't last long or go far with a pair of holes in their lungs.
