Deer Hunting Shot Placement

Kris Deer Hunting 1 Comment

When you think about it, what really is the perfect shot when hunting deer? Is it a shot to the heart? The spine? The head perhaps? Every hunter has a different opinion and will tell you that what they’ve been doing for a long time is ideal. However, even if they all differ, one thing is for sure, the perfect shot is one that puts the animal down.

In the video, Deer Hunting TV shares with us a new segment called Vital Information. Here, they discuss and analyse real hunting scenarios. By using 3D imaging technology, they will be able to show the trajectory and placement of shots, so that viewers can gain a better understanding of its importance.

In the first case, it showed a forest where the hunter said he has been before. It was a windy day, so he probably positioned himself down draft of the wind to avoid being smelled by the deer in the area. In the footage, you’ll see him carrying a bow and arrow as his hunting weapon. He is on an elevated area overlooking a small clearing surrounded by trees.

The hunter was also shown using a deer call to lure the animals into their chosen spot. Soon, two deer enter the area and they play around. It wasn’t clear why the hunters didn’t try and shoot the animals then. But anyway, soon a buck enters the hunter’s sights, and it looks to be injured as it was limping.

The hunter’s attention was then grabbed back by a doe that entered the hunting spot, about 35 yards away. However, it runs away and off the screen and under the cover of trees. It was replaced with another buck, looking like it was following the doe. It stops long enough for the hunter to aim and shoot his arrow. The deer was shot behind the shoulders and runs away.
