Old dog here, trying to learn new tricks. I have read several guys in the past talking about the "high shoulder shot" and it's effectiveness. Can somebody show a picture or diagram of where exactly this shot needs to go? What about angled to or away? I have always gone behind the shoulder, but as I get older I would rather not have to track a deer 50-100 yards even with good blood trail.

Thanks,

those pictures are what I showed my kids when they were first learning to hunt. Saying shoot him in the shoulder or shoot him just behind the shoulder didn't mean anything to them. However, once I showed them the picture they were able to see exactly where the shoulder was on the deer. I even had them put the picture on their iPad's so we could look at it while they were in the blind.

These pictures would be for rifle shots. For bow hunting, you want the larger area around the heart and lungs for shot placement.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

I shoot every deer in the neck. I've never wounded a deer, either it is dead or I missed. But all the sausage is in good shape. rifle No tracking, no mess. But the photos are a great way to show folks where to shoot. But since I'm retired I have all day and season to wait for my shot.
Excellent photos. peep
