I'm like anyone else in that I like a broadside shot where I can run a round thru the torso just behind the shoulder but I think my favorite angle is slightly quartering away! I've dumped more animals in their tracks from this angle than any other. What about you?

Right in the shoulder blade, very slightly quartering towards. They always just crash down right where they are.

300 win mag at 3180 fps with a 180 grain ballistic tip, everything pretty much drops where it stands. I also like a broadside shot behind the shoulder.

Quartering away, can be slight or sharp. It's world will get rocked if it's a sharp quartering shot. Running one from ham to tonsils pretty much sucks all the life out of them on the spot even with mobility intact.

Most of my hunting is with a muzzleloader, usually with round balls. I like a broadside shot with the ball placed just below the backbone at the top of the liver. That usually gets instant paralysis with no loss of meat.

Quartering away is the shot I prefer to take most often. Right between the peepers on a doe is a close second.

I like top of the shoulder at the base of the neck. For bow shots, quartering away.

Brain stem everything, except things with antlers, given the opportunity. If it's got antlers, then behind the shoulder.

Exactly as you said. Slightly quartering away has worked really well for me

I immediately thought tequila.....sorry.... back

High neck or head shot if possible.....high shoulder otherwise....

What am I shooting at? Pigs and deer get different shot placements.

If it's a buck, behind the shoulder. Doe, head shot if possible, or right behind the shoulder to minimize or avoid messing up the shoulder meat. (I shoot a 300 blk out with 125 BT or 125 SST)

Pigs- All pigs get a neck or high neck shot, or in the ear. If you shoot a pig in the shoulder or behind the shoulder, it will generally kill it, but it most likely will run 100+ yards before it does. I want to anchor a pig where it stands, so an ear hole or neck is what it gets.

Anything that makes a hog giddyup. I never knew hunting could be so much fun.
