Pretty self explanatory. Just explain why
From: Crusader dad
I choose B because if he drops at the shot I'll hit A and he's dead. If he doesn't drop, B is a heart shot.
B same reason
From: Rutten Buck
A. Lung shot and you have leave way. B. If your off by a inch. You just stuck a arrow in shoulder blade!
A. all day long! I feel allot more confident at that range aiming here. But that's me. It depends were the shooter is confident and yep...that's going to as different as the bows we choose to shoot!
B. I always aim for the heart. If they drop the string you hit A.
From: Mike F
A - Center mass, better blood trail. I will take a double lung over a heart shot any day.
A.....although its a larger vital area.....I still use "aim small miss small".
I'd say A as well. That shoulder is nothing to play with. A gives you a higher success % IMHO.
A, more room for potential error.
A I don't want to hit the shoulder by mistake.
I hang the bow up and give him another year .... :) Then a at 30 yards. B if under 20. Lost a dandy buck once catching the shoulder. Watched him hump a doe 2 weeks later
Without a doubt A. I prefer a lung shot.
A.. I also lost a beauty 3 yrs ago, 2" off and in the shoulder.
A-All day long, more room for error and good pass-thru lung shot.
I would hold the height of B, but directly below A. Stays away from bone other than rib, allows for slight drop, and will get heart or caudal major heart vessels if no movement. B will kill him, but too close to the point of elbow and heavy bone, no room for error. Spot A will also kill but a 4 inch drop of the body will be a spinal shot which may or may not work.
Neither... About 1 or 2" posterior (left) of B. If I had to pick one of those two it'd be A, but I am not a fan as I always shoot bottom third as too many bad things can happen simply shooting center mass on whitetails. (Here, the buck looks extremely relaxed and jumping the string percentage is way down at least. )Good post to make us think.
A, if I hit B then it is my error. B is too close to a leg wound, shoulder hit which probably works ok and brisket which does not work. Shoulders I can shoot through but doubt the knuckle joint. Shot a doe at B Nov 10, but at a higher angle. Centered the heart, arrow came out the far leg which reduced the blood trail, went 110 yards.
A most definitely. Leaves you with more room for error. You’re still going to hit the vitals and central diaphragm
A, if it was straight above B.
let him go
I'm aiming between A and B
If hunting from ground blind B. If up 30ft in climber definitely A. Deer appears very calm and at 30yds not too worried about him jumping the shot.
I am with BCD
You got to think outside the box. If he was 200 plus I shoot for C. Everybody knows if you cut off his breathing tube he is going to die.
I aim for exit hole so i would like my arrow to come out where B is ,so if I was shooting from the other side I would aim so it would come out around B .I always like the guys that say what if , its like they plan for failure .
I'm with Missouri.
That's odd, my new home computer shows me as mrj600? I set it up using the same pin number?

Between A and B. I like staying off the shoulder with a bow.
From: South Farm
A...miss high I got him, miss low I got him. But for the record I don't miss;)
South farm. Watch for karma now!! Lol. I only have not recovered one deer till this year. I hit a dream buck in the shoulder due to ducking string or human error. I believe it was all caused by karma for me picking on all my buddies who blast all there kills in the guts and still find them. Karma is a bitc###!!!
Between the letters not dots. Low is good for blood trail.
"A" most definitely.
From: lame crowndip
A for sure. I've always said if I heart shot a buck I shot low....(bigger target is my feeling). I'm almost always in a tree stand and the exit is low anyway.
