Depends on the how skittish the deer is but, typically E7 to account for a small amount of drop with a bow. D7 with gun.

It depends some variables for me. How high up I am, are they quartering or broadside, how skittish the deer is, and my bow (fast/slow, loud/quiet). Generally in the D7-E7 range. But I have shot some in D8 if they are quartering away more (aiming for exit).

F7 is a good spot for me. I wait for a slightly quartering away shot with the bear leg forward.

In a perfect word with perfect opportunity -
Bow F7, I had an accidental C2 with my bow that worked out nicely once. Though definitely not encouraged, and I do not try to replicate.
Rifle A-B 2
I rarely shoot a deer in the heart/lungs with a rifle. To much good meat gets ruined for me. I like the Neck for bullet placement.
