Default Shot Placement video

I made this video in an effort to help people understand where to aim. I see videos all the time where people hit middle of the body but say it was a perfect shot “right behind the shoulder”.
Hope this helps.

Good video .....with a good visual....thanks for sharing.


The only part I had any issue with was the mentioning of lung size referring to inhaling and exhaling.

Nice video.
The VERY best aid to teaching someone how and where to aim a scoped weapon (gun or XBow) is a small camera and adapter that I mount to the scope of my air guns or crossbow... It has a screen on it that I can turn on and it displays what you see when you look through the scope. It will fit regular powder burner rifle scopes too, but with the Xbow or air gun, there's no recoil so you can see the whole shot sequence through the scope... It got my 7 year old grandson from very first shot with my crossbow to hitting a 1" bulls eye at 20 and 30 yards... Even his little brother who is 5 could hit the bulls eye with the camera even though he was not big enough to shoulder the bow, aim and reach the trigger...

Love the video! Well done sir!

Just in case anyone cares to see the shot here you go. I film with my phone attached to my bow so yes it vibrates when I release. Sorry.

Yeah from the videos I’ve seen it is pretty minimal length wise but a little more width wise.
