,,,My year to get a deer I'm guessing :mad: I still can't believe that I missed again yeaterday :mad: 35-40 yards away, walking away from me, put the crosshairs on the base of his head and neack, squeeze off and he tuns and goes into the brush :eek: The bad part of all this is the shots have been easy one to make :confused:

Oh well two more days to go....

Put the crosshairs right on his TAIL!! Bigger Target!!

I commonly miss head shots too, not sure why? I missed a bull a couple years ago, all I could see was his head, about 80 yards, decent rest. Nothing. Missed a doe at about that same distance several years ago. Oh well. No foul, no harm.

Good Luck

About 95% of my shots are in the head or neck, on both deer and elk...Thats out of 9 elk( one body shot) and 100 deer...Now don't get me wrong,,a body shot is a damn good killing shot...I just hate to track..Kind of lazy that way I guess


We saw a few deer today, and I told myself to shoot for the lungs,,,then we saw deer and the rifle went straight for the head
all does..( note to self: carry screw in antlers into the woods ;) )

So far the score stands in the Hunterman camp at

Shooter deer 4 Huntermans camp 0 (1 tree :D damned oxygen maker)
