    well think if you were on an axis that would be the middle, correct?
    so if you need to adjust slighty for quatering to or away or whatever, that is still gonne be pretty dang close to where you want. otherwise aim for the exit hole and i think it will still be relatively close to that spot.
    why aim for a smaller heart shot or femoral artery shot? this seems to be a not greedy shot that would be easy for just about anyone to aim for and allow for punched triggers, slight tremblings because of buck fever etc etc.

    I like what you said.. aim for the exit hole. I have NOT done that in the past and it has cost me some deer. Just seemed high for a shot above the feet is all to me. I need to remember exit hole.

    i never had anyone ever really explain why they went for heart shots etc..
    if you heart shoot one the bodies reaction is to slow down = longer time to die. lungs = the body speeds up trying to get air = heart pumps faster and quicker death. just seems more humane to me. so why not aim for the middle of the lungs and depending on your angle etc aimong for the exit in the middle of the lungs is a sweet spot to me and way more efficient.

    I am a spine down to the heart shooter. Most of my deer pass under my stand and are walking away. I have practiced this shot over and over and found it to be very effective. The spine is snapped and the arrow passes through the heart. The deer drop in their tracks and expires quickly.
