1. A rifle shot to the brain
2. High shoulder shot with a large caliber rifle (7 mag or bigger)
3. Rifle shot to the neck right below the head

A bow can do it with a shot to the spine but it's a very small target and not adviseable.

20mm chain gun. I have only had 1 deer every drop in place without moving, it was a double lunger with a 260Rem. Those are pretty rare.

I've never had a deer take a step with a .243 Winchester loaded with Ballistic Tip. I also dropped a decent 8 point buck with a .223 with a Ballistic Silvertip, I just shoulder punched him and he dropped dead in his tracks. But I would say the 20 mm chain gun would do the job just fine

A spine shot which has a smaller target area will drop them, the next closest would be a double lunger – slipping an arrow thru the chest without startling a deer, some will jump ahead a step stand there until they tip over.

Either way I prefer the double lunger once you take the air away they drop fairly close and quick - I have seen solid “heart shots” run dang near 80 yards or more
