Default Shot Placement on a deer?

Does anybody have any pictures on a shot placement on a deer should be with a bow? I'm not real for sure. Also if there are any of differen't positions of a deer that would be helpful also.

Look up the International Bowhunter Education website - they have pictures there, or posters that you can order.

If hunting from a tree stand be sure to visualize the exit path of the arrow that way you are sure that the arrow hits vitals as it passes thru the deer. Depending on the angle you may have to aim a little high for the entry but will hit vitals on the exit.

This should give you a pretty decent idea of where to stick them, double lung is the best and of course if you can drive tacks with a bow you could go for the heart!

*NOTE the red dot is NOT where to shoot, I am not sure why it is there, but with a bow that is a bad place to hit, to much bone!

Tazman.... it appears as though our deer is constipated. I have a cure for that.[8D]

Ya know its a funny thing shoot a deer. Sometimes i have shot bucks in the neck and find them 40yds away, then u could shoot a dbl lung and that deer will run 200yds! I guess it depends on each situation. If u got a good broadhead and a good shot, then there shouldnt be any reason you couldnt kill a deer humanly and quickly.
