I am with the Bs. Less chance for the bone in the front shoulder.

This was kind of what I always thought. I have only shot 5 deer and have aimed low on all of them. They all died quick with good blood trails.

That makes sense. My thinking was always aim low. If they duck, I hit lungs in the middle. If they donít, I hit heart. The downside is if I make an error and shoot lower than I meant to. I also predominantly hunt out of ground blinds

I don't aim for the rear leg when its back that far. I'd rather the arrow go through the heart, and pass through.



Had a similar shot on #2....hit at B and barely clipped the base of the heart....dead at 60 yards. Thankful for Grim Reapers width on that day.



Fast forward to 1:20

Im mostly from a treestand. I hunt from the ground maybe twice last season.

I have aimed that low on a doe from the ground. Never found her or my arrow. Sporatic blood trail, got better down the trail. Then got less and less. Im guessing my POI was below my point of aim.
