Shot Placement for Downing a White Tail Deer
"I, as a hunter, have a responsibility to the sport of hunting to make quick harvests and recover all game animals." Quick harvests and easy game recovery can be obtained with accurate shot placement. The three main ingredients of a quick harvest are knowledge of how a hunting weapon harvests game, shooting only within one's own ability, and knowing the game animal's internal anatomy. The future of hunting and a hunter's own self-respect depends on his or her ability to efficiently harvest game.
