Ok, what's everyone's opinion on the low front shoulder shot? Here is what I know:
1. with the right gun/bullet combination, it drops em in their tracks.
2. it pretty well destroys the front shoulders (aka very little salvageable meat left on the bone).
99% of the time I take high shoulder shot or neck shoulder crease
Once you take ligament out not much decent meat on the shoulder any way. Most my bucks go to sausage any way. Does and stags different story different shot placement. Not a fan of ruining my clothes in the brush tracking deer.
If your really worried about meat use a bow
