Default If he is quartering away??

You know I got to thinking and out all the deer I have killed with the bow, I have never shot one quartering away. Where is the best plae to put it if this comes up this year. I want pics or diagrams or something. Say the deer is anywhere from 8-25 yds...

"Look" at the opposite shoulder as your aiming point when a deer is quartering away. Works well for me.

Try to invision the path of the arrow to dictate where you want to place the arrow.

If your in the tree an he is QA then aimso the arrow will hopefully exit just behind an low on the opposite shoulder.

There is many degrees of quartering away most you can just aim for the opposite shoulder.Sometimes the shot angle could make it difficult to hit vitals without hitting paunch first(pic 3)but it can be done.
